I am looking to upgrade my system. I want to use a am3+ fx8350 processor along with 32gb of ddr3 1600 memory, My problem is what motherboard? I want a board that will support all of my existing stuff, I want 1 ide & floppy, surround sound with optical out, hdmi ou,t esata & ieee1394. The 2 boards I am looking at are the ASUS M5A88-V EVO I can get thid board on newegg for $89 + shipping or the MSI 880G-E45 I can get on amazon for $59. Dont know if there is any other boards out there that have all the features I want I'm on a shoestring budget & any help/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi, There are some problems with the boards: the MSI one doesn't list the FX as compatible: http://www.msi.com/product/mb/880G-E45.html#/?div=CPUSu...
and the ASUS one needs a BIOS update for supporting the CPU: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3Plus/M5A88V_EVO...
For updating the BIOS you need a supported CPU, or you can buy a BIOS chip and replace the board's one.
For finding a board with the features you need, use newegg (motherboards, left panel, more options).
