  1. There are no AMD motherboards that support PCIe 3.0 right now. However, any AMD motherboard can use a PCIe 3.0 graphics card because PCIe is backwards compatible with PCIe 2.0. I would suggest you look at motherboards based on the 970, 990X and 990FX Chipsets. My preferred brands are ASUS and ASROCK. Gigabyte is also a good brand.
  2. can you give a link of any motherboard of these brand newegg or amazon but remember the cheapest one ok and thank you for information buddy
  3. please reply for god sake

    Your're WRONG buddy---try the NEW ASUS Rampage--(X79) it has the 3.0X16 64 bit PCIe X16,16x,16x,16x using the new Intel IVY instead of the old sandy bridge.

    try the new ASUS Rampage (X79) it uses the new IVY bridge by intel instead of the old sandy bridge and gets a 64 bit 3.0X16,16x,16x,16x--there are some problems with this board--new tech always have new bugs!

    I hate to burst your bubble but he was asking about AMD motherboards using the AM3+ socket. The newest AMD Chipsets are 970, 990X and 990FX based. None of those chipsets supports PCIe 3.0 nor do the AMD CPU's have PCIe implemented on the CPU. However, a PCIe 3.0 graphics card can be used in a PCIe 2.0 motherboard because it's backwards compatible to PCIe 2.0. It just runs at PCIe 2.0 speed.

    The ASUS Rampage motherboards are high end INTEL motherboards that use the Intel Chipsets and intel sockets. Since the X79 Intel chipsets and Socket 2011 CPU's do support PCIe 3.0, those motherboards do support PCIe 3.0 graphics cards at PCIe 3.0 speed. Don't believe me? Look at this: http://usa.asus.com/Search/?SearchKey=Rampage They are all Intel chipsets supporting only Intel CPU's.

  8. Get the Asus Sabertooth 990FX Gen3 R2.0. It has PCIE 3 slot.
  9. I use a Asus AM3+ Sabertooth 990FX R2.0.

    Solid motherboard, 5 year warrenty and works great for gaming. Also supports overclocking and Crossfire/SLI
  10. +1, Asus Sabertooth 990FX Gen3 R2.0. does support PCIE3 :p
  11. Yep so far the only AM3+ MoBo with PCIe 3.0 is the ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX/GEN3 R2.0
    I am looking all over for it and the only one I can find is here
