Looking for some mobo advice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So Im building my first system, currently running an ATI 2600 xt and 2.6ghz duo, which is so out of date now.

Currently looking to spend about 700$ or less total. I want to spend about 120$ on the MOBO or less.

I've got so far: AMD Phenom II 3.0 Ghz six-core 1075T
Radeon HD 6850
8 Gigs ddr3 ram
RG700-S12 700W power supply.

I have absolutely no clue how to get the most bang for my buck out of motherboards, and really not sure if spending more will give me that much more performance. It seems like the least-essential part of my gaming PC as far as speed goes.

Any suggestions? Im looking at the MSI 870A-G54. Im looking to overclock as well, but I dont have any experience with that.

The TA890FXE is a solid board, great overclocker, and the best bang for the buck. PCI-e spacing sucks but then again if you can afford 3 or 4 cards you'd be looking at the ASUS Extreme IV? I think that's what it's called.

Edit- I'm retarded and should have read better and you just wanted advice on the mainboard. I'd still go with the Biostar TA890FXE though

At that price point... an 870 motherboard (GA-870A-UD3) or cheaper 890FX mobo (TA890FXE [don't use this with PSC IC memory though] or 890FXA-GD65) should suit you fairly well enouhg.
