Sorry to be talking about Motherboards in the Scout thread, but I'm not getting much of a response, yet, from the Motherboard's section. (Yes, I know I am impatient).

After reviewing some of the "Official" motherboard owners clubs, I have a couple questions...

I'm looking at 3 Gigabyte Motherboards:

Now, I have to ask. What is the difference between the 3 Chip Sets? Also, Whats the difference between GX and FX?

I am taking this weekend to do my research.

Cost is, some what, of an issue. Spending $450 on a 3 component upgrade isn't cheap but when you consider the 3 components are CPU, MB, and RAM, $450 is reasonable.
If you're gonna order from newegg you should have a fair amount of headroom with that budget. Take advantage of the combo deals.

EDIT: They don't really seem to have any good ones going on unless you're planning on buying CoD:MW2

After reviewing some of the "Official" motherboard owners clubs, I have a couple questions...

I'm looking at 3 Gigabyte Motherboards:

Now, I have to ask. What is the difference between the 3 Chip Sets? Also, Whats the difference between GX and FX?
FX is better. Supposedly has more overclocking headroom and has more PCI-e lanes. The 890 series also uses 55nm fabrication while the 790 chipsets use 65nm(the new one will run cooler). Like I said earlier, if you're not getting this anytime soon you should wait for the 890FX but I guess it all depends on what your plans are.

When referring to the chipsets, you're referring to GX and FX as well as they are the chipsets. The 890 mobo's SB's have support for 14 USB 2.0 ports(Gigabyte will surely give you USB 3.0) while the 790s can only go up to 12 USB 2.0 ports. It also has support for 6 SATA 6 GB/s ports opposed to 6 SATA 3 GB/s. Though...you won't notice bottlenecks anytime soon.

EDIT: Also... - FX gives you 2 Gigabit LAN ports while GX gives you 1.

I'm not an AMD guy so take my word as a grain of salt.
but isn't the 890GX the latest chipset for AMD and it has usb and sata 3
so I would pick that one.

I noticed the MW discount, which is priced at $49.99 and the combo discounts the $49.99 lol. Already have the game for XBOX360 anyways.

Ping-Pong.. I have a response by 2 respected members. 1 for 890GX and 1 for 790FX. It is more clear to me now, K10, why you suggest to wait for the 890FX - Best of both worlds. Would you happen to know the cost of the 890FX?

The secret Danny is you sit outside in big chair and make the teenager do the work. You sit and drink beer and tell him about the good old days when you used to fight lions with your "TEETH"

I like the 890 board but he knows what I know. There is new stuff a cummin and you might want to wait at least two weeks. for the FX and the Thuban 6 core. We are all going to need a new board by this time next year so wait as long as you can.

And about the General thing. K-10 won't tell you what his old name was before he changed it and helped this post get on its feet and so did Kev B. I could not have done all this without them. Ergo. They are Generals too.

I can still pick up 200-300LB **** without loss of feeling, just severe pain that i have learned to push through. Now that im in my 30's im starting to become smarter about what i do to my back. Wont work on cars, work on PC's while sitting down....and always make my wife perform sex for me. lol
