I'm gona put my money wherever the cheapest is. I'm pretty used to stripped down boards so lack of features won't be an issue with me.

Can anyone show me a 990FX MB that can fit in there four dual slot cards ???

The Gigabyte one will not fit in because of the northbridge cooler !

I would be looking for a similar layout successor to the MSI 890FX-GD70 !

Don't know yet

But I want one that has PCI slots that can be used because I plan on getting xfire setup and I bought, just over a month ago, a PCI sound card ( asus xonar D1 ) I am not wasting that money just like that ( I didn't want the PCIx version because it required extra power from floppy connection which is god damn stupid )

All the ones that I saw have stupid placement of the PCI slot under the 2nd PCIx16 slot and I dare you to find a single slot high end GPU that doesn't use water cooling

Freacking retarded design for all mobos

If Bulldozer is successful and offers a decent performance gap between my i7 920, I'll be going with whatever gives the best price and performance.

So far the Crosshair IV seems the best feature wise (Intel NIC on an AMD board. Win.)

The Gigabyte and ECS boards also look great aesthetics wise.

Well, there was another model of the 990 that MSI was releasing (GD65?) that I saw, but I can't find the pics anywhere now, was 2xPCI-e with "L" Phase and Heatsink layout, like the 1155 boards.
I was gonna get that originally, as the Conqueror is a bit much, and a bit "last gen/copy" with the Asus style Heatsinks.

Since seeing the Sabretooth, aslong as the price aint higher than around £150, I'll likely be getting that baby. Quality VRM's have pushed me away from my once "loyal to" MSI, it'll only be between those two, but Asus has me wanting more.

I'll most likely pickup a Crosshair V myself.

Then probably use my CH IV with the PH II x4 970BE, 4GB of G.Skill and Corsair H70 I have laying around to build another system.

since my color scheme is orange/red/yellow I will weigh the prices of the Gigabyte and Crosshair and then decide.

The sabertooth looks epic, but I prefer to not have to redesign my entire setup.
