Hey Guys!
I might be getting a new motherboard soon and I would like to know (Since I have not got loads of money to throw around)
What is the cheapest dual x16 PCI-E, 6GBps Sata III, Full-size ATX Board with a 990FX (Or 970FX) Chipset?
Thanks!

Know any trustworthy and cheap buyers from England that sell that board? Amazon's sellers are a bit overpriced.

EDIT^^ (Dam Edit not working again)
Also, is there anything I need to note like will this Biostar support my 4170 out of the box?
Any bugs with the bios/drivers for this board?

I know nothing either on Biostar until I google'd that board.
At least I know it will overclock good.
I just got to find a good UK price for it because there is a huge price range for this board but I don't want to pick a company that are useless at what they do.

Yeah, checked Biostars website and this board is supplied with the latest bios 99% of the time.
The only thing about this board is that its hard to find from a reliable source.

Well now my options are ASRock Extreme 3 or Biostar TA990FXE. (that Gigabyte board broke my £90 limit)

Thats why I was hoping to have some other fellow Englishmen give me a hand here.

Try going for a good Gigabyte one, they are good quality and great for gaming! If you're willing to spend a bit more look at the ASUS Formula & Sabertooth models.
