    Default Old System - New Parts

    I'm looking to upgrade my daughter's tower, as we often joke about how she keeps getting my "hand me downs". So, I just got an FX 6350 for a good price from the egg, $38 off (sale,48 hr promo and will call pickup). Next is the mobo, either the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 or ASUS M5A99FX Pro 2.0. Right now they're both the same price, so which would be the better deal?

    Both boards are very similar by everything and both boards are capable of overclocking. The gigabyte has better power phasing at 8+2 (better voltage control), vs the 6+2 of the asus. That is a plus for the gigabyte, also I personally like more the black color scheme of Giga, than Asus blue.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    If the UD3 is V1 avoid it. Higher Version then I prefer that one over the Asus board.

    Have you considered some MSI boards? 6350 doesn't have a huge power requirement so the 6+2 phases wouldn't be too bad. Besides, the 970 is on sale on the egg right now so it's only $80.

    MSI 970 Gaming AM3+ AMD 970 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard - Newegg.com

    The new 990fx is nice with some of the new features but the UD3 would still be a better value.

    I just remembered, I'm selling my Asrock 990fx extreme9 board. Good overclocker. If you're interested, let me know. I originally was looking for $125 shipped but I'm willing to negotiate a bit. =D Only if you're interested though as Gigabyte and MSI tend to be better quality overall.

    Actually, I was looking at the 970's but I'm going to crossfire this later this year. For now the main parts are the FX 6350, 8gg of Team Vulcan ddr3 1600 and Sapphire R9 280. The board I'm replacing is the ASRock 770 Extreme 3. Although budget is the deciding factor, 990FX is the need. I saw your Extreme 9 and I'm seriously considering it. I won't be able to do anything until next week as my son's birthday is this weekend and he has a powerlifting competition in Vegas as well so my hands (and wallet) are tied for now. As for Cyberburnout's comment, the UD3 board doesn't give a version designation, so I'm guessing that it's the V1.

    Take your time. I'm in no hurry to sell and I'll give ya first dibs, but don't feel obligated. If you like one of the other boards, go with what you like best.
