Hello fellow Techies,

I am running an FX-8120 on an Asus 760 Mobo listed bellow. I read before that FX Series processors run better on 9 Series Mobo's. I do not want to spend more than $100. If you have a better choice let me know!

My questions are:

Will I notice a big difference in boot ups, program launches, gaming graphics, etc?

Are these decent MoBo's to run Crossfire?

Anything else I should know about these?

----------------------------------------------

This is the one I am currently using.

ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS AM3+ AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

----------------------------------

These two are the options I came up with.

MSI 970A-G46 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

I just purchased the asrock 990. I love Asus but the asrock is the way to go in my opinion

Oops, thought you were comparing the ASROCK to an Asus not MSI. I'd still take the ASROCK over the other =)
