Please try and bare with me here i have alot of questions.my current set/up consists of a asus m5a97 motherboard the regular one not r2.0, my cpu is the fx 6100 what iam,looking to do is chsnge chipset to 990fx probbly a gigabyte 990fx ud3!.....i run crossfired 6970s currently and i was wondering how much performance iam losing on account of the motherboards x16 x4 pcie/e lanes , the 2nd pcie is only x4 so will i see a better performance jump on the the gigsbyte board?.... I can also pick up the asus m5a99fx instead of the gigabyte. I will probbly change my cpu as well but for now would need to use my fx 6100 until i have the money next month for the 8350 or a 6300, do you guys think i schould do the upgrade? iam only interested in gamng performance,if theres no benafits ill just stick with my current setup a bit longer. Thank you.....keep in mind the cpu needs some muscle to run eyefinity i have 1 more monitor to go to finish my eyefinity setup
