Recommend me an AM3+ mobo

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am looking to upgrade my computer this summer, so I figure why not go with bulldozer (If it ever gets released). I see that AM3+ mobos are starting to pop up, and was wanting a recommendation. It needs to be able to support crossfire. Thanks for the input.

We need more info on what your are looking for to provide you with an accurate answer. But personally, I'd say any 990FX board will be a good choice.
post #3 of 11
ASRock Deluxe5 is probably the best bet right now.

Sabertooth if you want 990FX

IMO grab the 990FXA-UD3, price tag won't be to high due to it not being the highest end and it supports crossfire.



But in reality i'd wait a couple more weeks for more boards and more reviews start to turn up.

Check this thread, it's got some information on just about the full 990FXA line up from gigabyte. You'll see more information in a few weeks like i said before when more reviews start popping up.
