    New MOBO.

    Going to buy a new mobo for the AMD1090 cpu,been looking at a lot of boards and found this.
    Crosshair IV Formula

    •AMD Phenom II X6.
    •AMD 890FX / SB850.
    •Dual DDR3 2000(O.C.)
    •ROG Connect - Plug and Overclock, Tweak it the hardcore way!
    •Turbo Unlocker - On Demand Real Time CPU Boost.
    •Core Unlocker - Intelligently Unlocks True Core Performance.
    Anyone tried this or is there a better board on the marked in the same price range

    I'm still running the XFXHD4890s as well. i have a modest OC on them and I get great FPS in all the games. I dont think I will upgrade for awhile till I can see more games going to DX11. The trade off just isnt there yet for me.

    Also I am able to run (2) 32inch LCD's monitors so eyefinity isn't a must at the moment.

    Got everything working again with this mobo, great buy but had some problems in the start, for those of you who will be running this mobo with the Amd 1090 dont toutch the core unlocker on the mobo or the Os will not load.

    Please give me a heads up if you trade up on the gpus, so I can see if its worth it
