I got lucky and got a great deal on it, and its proved to be a rock solid board. So if the 890FX version is available (M4A89TD- PRO/USB3) then go for it, as it would be perfect for your price range.

Otherwise, hold out a little longer for the 990GX/FX to come out, should be within the next couple months and when it does, it will push the price of the 890's down a little more. Honestly, I jumped the gun on my 890GX when I bought it, when I really wanted the 890FX but got impatient waiting and working on a budget, I jumped the gun and ordered the open box 890GX. Glad I got lucky with it though!
If you dont mind, what made you want the 890FX over the 890GX other than the FX is x16 PCI-e slots rather than dual x8?
