Which motherboard should I get? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I'm begging you don't buy MSI 990FXA-GD65, there's a lot of issues with it. I had it, nearly drained all of my patience, I was thinking about smashing it to pieces but i rather exchanged it for the 990FXA-UD3.

I've been interested in that as well. My one gripe about it is that there are only six expansion slots. But ASUS has been doing that for a long time so I guess it's nothing new. I'm curious to find out about the Extreme 4. There isn't a lot of info on the internet about it. I've never owned an ASrock motherboard before but from what I do know, they make very high quality stuff. I would have to say that it's down to the ud3, Extreme 4 and the Sabertooth. I'm worried about vdroop on the ud3 but I like the fact that there is dual slot spacing between the x16 lanes and that there are 7 expansion slots. I have a PCIe x1 wireless card and I would like to mount that without interfering with a potential SLI setup

Yeah I was checking that one out. It's a bit more than I wanted to spend. I'm not big on spending almost 200 bucks on a motherboard, but it looks like a quality motherboard
