I would say that's a very fine choice for motherboard. I've always been a big gigabyte fan. All you need now is the bulldozer chip and you're ready to go.

Your motherboard is a big winner and is something I would highly recommend
Great features for price. I always love it when there is a midrange __X chipset/boards out, AMD skipped that with the 800 series boards. They're perfect for most everyone, at a great price!

There will be BD 4-core CPUs at a lower price than the 6 or 8-core models (most people may not need the extra cores anyway due to how threaded current apps are).

So yeah I think i'll go ahead and buy that motherboard, since you highly recommend it. I know you told me before that, my current motherboard has no VRM cooling, and I tried/plan to OC, and I needed to change my mobo as soon as possible. I'm just taking your advice. Thanks for your inputs sir! +rep for you!

like XD said I'm sure that the lower end chips will be great as far as price goes I bet once they are all released you will be able to find a good deal somewhere God only knows when when bulldozer comes out I am to be all over the eight core.
