Looking for advice FX8350 motherboard Tags: Gigabyte Performance Motherboards Last response: February 22, 2013 1:09 AM in Motherboards Share iphysc February 21, 2013 6:49:22 PM Hi guys, I have recently bought a FX8350 and now all I need is a motherboard to go along with it. I've come down to 2 motherboards and that is GA-970A-UD3 ($150NZD) GA-990FXA-UD3 ($230NZD) http://www.gigabyte.co.nz/products/comparison/list.aspx?ck=2&pids=4397,4417 and i'll be running a single HD7850 along with it. Now the question is that since 990fxa provide 200MHz more Hypertransport, is it worth spending that $70 more and getting a 990FXA motherboard. and what are the performance gains from that additional hypertransport? Need advice, Thanks~ More about : advice fx8350 motherboard BerylLee a b V Motherboard February 21, 2013 11:56:28 PM 990fxa-ud3 get better performance with 125w cpu .. rev. 3.0.
