    need help with choice for amd board

    Max is 100 pounds to spend on the board.
    asrock 890GX Extreme3
    ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3
    running amd 6core cpu with 4 gig of ddr mem.

    Was going to buy the asus 89pro /usb3 but the price has jumped up by 12%, so now iam left with those two choices.


    bit of back ground info i might be running 2 ati graph cards, and really seeking best board and stability rather than having problems. ive never purchased a asrock board always stuck to abit or gigabyte. iam lookign for good quality parts. oam seeking usb3 sata3 and prefer pcie running at 8x/8x for crossfire rather than 8x/4x which the m4a88td-v evo board does.
    Really need help.

    thx you

    You can get the Asus M4A89GTD Pro for under £100:

    This lacks USB 3.0 though.

    If you really want USB 3.0 I would go for the Asrock motherboard as for Crossfire running both PCI-E lines at the same speeds will be better.

    Or from another upgrade thread of yours here:
