Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 ATX AMD Motherboard

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #32 in AMD Motherboards

Pros: Solid, Reliable, Well priced

Cons: Aesthetics (though this is subjective)

Great board for those looking for a quality 990 chipset board but not wanting to break the bank on the 990fx offerings.

With all the expected features of a Gigabyte ultra durable board this board comes in (in the UK) around 25% cheaper than the 990FXA-UD3.

What do we lose by saving this cash?

- Backpanel eSATA the FXA has 2 of these the XA none

- Second PCIe lane on the FXA is at X16 on the XA it's at X8

- Colour - The XA is the standard Gbyte blue while the FXA get a fancier black

Thats it!

Now in my eyes that makes this board pretty attractive. Most people can happily live without eSATA on the back panel and the PCIe lane at X8 is still ok to run a 2nd card. It will support the same CPU's as the 990FXA and overclock them as well as the 990FXA, so if you are after a well priced AM3+ board look at this one.
