Motherboard upgrade

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I would like to upgrade to 890/990 chipset, since i got some issues with my old board. I would like to know some things:

I don't know wether to take the Crosshair IV or the Crosshair V Formula. Both have good reviews etc. but I can't decide which one to take. Is it best to take the V Formula for Bulldozer, because I might upgrade to Bulldozer

Thanks
Solid Enough!

Crosshair V.990FX supports SLI and is designed for Bulldozer,and as you say,any future upgrade will be no trouble.

The CH V Formula would be a better bet, yeah.
