I can see that..but it would have been better if they have included one just as backup..

Currently, the only AMD CPU's with Graphics support are the AMD APU Line. FX Series Chips do not have any sort of graphics capabilities

If all you want is a backup new video cards start at $25 USD or so. Or you could go to the nearest flea market and get a used one for cheap. I have a 2007 nvidia 8800GTS sitting in a box as my backup. Used it earlier this year too. rolleyes.gif

Wow, tough choice! I got it narrowed down to the three:

MSI 990 FXA-GD80 V2

Gigabyte GA-88FX-UD3

Asus M5A99FX Pro r2.0

All three almost have the same features and the only difference I see are the prices of each, but even then those are negligible..I may be biased here, but something tells me I'll go with the Asus, then the Gigabyte as the second choice, since I don't have much experience / knowledge with MSI..

I would get the asus board. I have the m5a99x evo r2 (990x version) and it is very good. It is very heavy and feels solid. Dont be put off because it has a 6+2 phase vrm. The components used are of very good quality. This motherboard has the same vrm section (minus a few phases) as the sabertooth and crosshair motherboards. The whole idea that you need an 8+2 phase to overclock an 8 core is really not true and i can guarantee you will get the most out of your cpu with the asus board. With the motherboard i have i run my fx 6300 @ 4.6ghz 24/7 and have never had any bsod's or stability problems.

If you get the Asus your heatsink might require you to use RAM slots 2 and 4. It's a good board though.

I plan to use as much of my old parts in the new Mobo up until I can raise my funds for the FX CPU and the ATI GPU, so that means I'll still be using my DeepCool IceEdge Mini II, which will give me clearance for the RAM Slots 1 and 3..thanks for the heads-up anyways!

If you are planning on going FX in the future scratch the UD3 from your list, unless you get a rev4 board. The current rev3 can not handle the 8XXX CPU and has trouble with the 6XXX cpu. At the least you will have a hot running system.
