Best AM3+ Mobo $150 or under?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, looking for an AM3+ mobo, since my biostar died and I want to upgrade for bulldozer anyway.

I need something strong for overclocking. I will also be putting two 6850`s in crossfire, and running a sound card through pci, so I need something with good slot spacing.

Something with at least 3 fan headers would also be great.

Opinions? Questions?

spend the extra 50 if you can on the sabertooth, its a beautiful thing. and there's something like 6 4-pin fan headers with thermal radar.

Hi, I would but I really don't have the money, and I do not really enjoy the Sabertooth color scheme.

What's your thoughts on these two boards?

Go ahead and get the 990FXA. Its looking like one of the good boards for the money. The only reason I didn't get the 990XA is because of the coloring scheme tongue.gif
