Although the 890FXA has been known for a mild VRM failure rate, an old NF980 chipset is not a better buy.... (it does not overclock CPUs as well among other things) so cancel your order!
For a much less cost, the next generation Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3
is a better value and choice than the NF980 board and the 890FX board. Although it features half the PCI-E lane count, an x8 PCI-E link is not going to affect your GPU performance to any noticeable extent until you have two HD 6970s running at extremely high resolutions. It should cost somewhat less, esp. with shipping costs being much lower from NCIX. The board uses AM3+ socket and will take in current generation AMD FX CPUs as well as several future generations of AMD CPUs.
You should try to avoid buying from Newegg.ca or pretty much any American retailer in general if you are in Canada, because of highly overpriced shipping costs (as well as high return times) from American warehouses. Buy from stores such as NCIX (probably your best choice in Montreal - NCIX is [one of] Canada's largest online [and local in Toronto and Vancouver] computer retailers) or MemoryExpress (I don't think they ship everywhere). NCIX will price match any price from Newegg.ca if their initial price isn't lower, as well as other Canadian retailers that may have lower prices. You pay much less for shipping and get your items much faster.
