Hey guys this is my first real effort at putting a computer together.

Not looking for opinions on brands or suggestions on swapping out the parts I've chosen. I am simply having trouble finding a mobo and PSU for this theoretical build, here are the other components I'm looking at:

GPU

CPU
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16819103727

RAM
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16820231401

Hard Drive
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16822148506

Looking for a mobo and a PSU that can support this stuff, hoping someone has the answer!

Thanks guys

The Asus Crosshair IV Formula and Extreme are really great boards that fit your requirements. That's if you want to spend that much though...

The Seasonic X650/X750 PSU's are also really great too. 80+ plus gold, 100% modular, extremely quiet, etc.

A good 500 Watt PSU will be more than enough. If you plan on doing SLI, I'd loo into around 700 watts from a good brand.
Definitely pick up the 1055T over the 965.

What is your budget for the motherboard?

Thanks for the speedy responses guys! Also in regards to the x6 from what I've seen on benchmarks, the x4 outperforms it. I could be wrong, and if you guys have proof showing the x6 outperforming the x4 I'll most likely switch over.

Asus M4A89GTD PRO meets all your requirements. Plus, it's a great overclocker and is fairly cheap!

My AMD Phenom II X6 1090T E0 outperforms my previous AMD Phenom II X4 965 C3, in everything including gaming (most notably in Battlefield Bad Company 2, which is CPU-intensive) and 3D rendering in 3ds Max. The two extra cores definitely makes a nice difference. I've got my new CPU overclocked to 4.0GHz and it's performing amazingly in everything I throw at it. With the motherboard I recommend, my CPU (or any of the X6 CPUs) will overclock to 4.0GHz and more with little voltages and effort (provided temperatures allow, of course!).

sorry to say,
but you are wrong,
x6 thuvan is much much better than x4 deneb.
I'v suggest you some of the best AMD motherboards in my previous post.
If you run phenomII x6 with them,your rig will be a beast.
Get phenomII x6 1055t & you can overclock it to 4.0ghz with the mobo I mentioned
