I can definitely recommend the dfi expert, its easy to set up has tons of bios options, and clocks like mad. there are a few threads on them in the amd mobo section. And don't pick a mobo based on your card choice, unless you are going toi multi gpu...

The MSI Neo4-F is a killer OCer and will tide you over until R580 comes out in January. You might as well get a refurb off newegg for like $55 bucks. You don't need the cables anyways.

Lol, no more switching mobos for tonight I am sticking with the SLI-DR Expert. Even if I get a R580 (could always get G80) I would only get one so any mobo is fine.
