That one should do fine - I have the 870 Extreme3 and it's a great board for the price. Its big brother board should be just as nice, if not better biggrin.gif
post #6 of 10
i would get an asus board, but thats just me.

in my experience, asus build quality is the best (asrock is asus?)

i used that processor in an asus m4a88td evo mobo, i believe there is a mobo of the same specs without the usb3 or built in graphics, i will post a link once i find one

edit: this asrock looks like it is the best you can get for your money, however you may want to consider saving up a bit and getting a better mobo, as there are a lot of reported troubles with this board

yes asrock are apparently a cheaper sub company of asus and iv been told before there not as good

also why would you post that other board that was £60 that's worse than the £80 one
it has no vrm cooling, 4+1 phase vrms (as far as i can tell) and surely the chip set is much worse than the 880 surely?
then tell me not to buy it because its got loads of bugs lol
thanks for your help but you haven't really helped much

They are a subsidiary of Asus.

The 870 Extreme 3, 880G Extreme 3, 890GX Extreme 3, and 890FX Extreme 3/4/5 boards are all solid boards with great build quality.

I would have no problem going with an ASRock board. They look quite nice.
