Funny thing is I never called anyone an intel person. Maybe nobody on this board is a intel person. Amd v intel is like the age old chevy v ford thing, you can debate forever. Seriously. its ridiculous. Intel has a better chip right now but who cares..... buy your system for what you need and unless your an idiot and want to be more hardcore ownage then the guy next to you than just buy whatever floats your boat, whether thats amd or intel.

Anyway, thanks for gettin around to my mobo question.. I may wait for deneb or go intel who knows. didnt start this thread for a giant debate, just wanted input on a mobo, which cntdwn gave me. Thanks dude

Edit: and for meat helmet, no i probably wont sli or xfire. You can just wait for the better card to come out a year later cuz sli and xfire isnt really worth it to me. there isnt a Huuuuge amount more gpu there than a single card. I like keeping up with technology and all but your outdated no matter what build you have after a few months.

Sorry dude, but im not the type that stays quiet about anything.

But go for the 790GX, i like ASUS boards a lot because they tend to
provide more bios updates, so down the road if you want deneb im positive
that board will be able to run one.

as well, if you like biostar - the GX model for it.
edit: heh, found it - BIOSTAR TFORCE TA790GX A2+ AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

i did read somewhere a while ago that they were 'toying' with maybe releasing a more high end GX model. but i haven't seen anything.
