    what do you guys think of this board, if i plan on
    running it with a phenom 965 3.4
    xfx 6950 2gig 256bit
    8gigs ddr3 1600 ripjaws
    650corsair psu
    and prolly the m4 series ssd crucial 64gig

    im kinda on a budget for the board. it has the 990fx chip, so i can upgrade when i want to, but still keep my old am3 for now.

    Unless you plan on downgrading to a Bulldozer based FX processor....there's really no reason to worry about "upgrading" as if you game, there's no justification for a 6-core processor and the Bulldozer based FX-8150 will be slower in most cases. You're actually better off to stay with what you have at least until socket FM2 is released. Bulldozer looks to be a major flop and Piledriver is only expecting a 10% gain over Bulldozer...which would leave it more as a side-grade to your current processor.

    That said, the board looks fine....
