Shame i just placed an order for AMD Phenom II X6 Six Core 1090T, Kingston HyperX Genesis Grey 4GB (2x2GB), Gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H AMD for 228.22 which i think is pretty good for the price. Mind you the 880GM is grade B and was only 36 it will tie me over till the 990FX boards become available to buy, Thinking of the GA-990FXA UD3 or UD7 motherboard. Never used Gigabyte boards before so see how that goes always been ASUS.

That's what I am doing use the 880g wait till the 990fx comes out put the x6 in there wait for the FX chips come out replace the x6 then I'll have a media centre pc, yay with out going out and buying everything at once. With intel they treat their processors and motherboards as consumable items. Every gen you need to replace half your rig.

Yeah thats awesome, I think AMD really look after people in this respect. The 990fx boards look very nice, I love the fact that have so many SATA6 ports. My board only has 2, i'm not going to count the crappy Marvell SATA6 controller.

If you check review sites AMD's Solution is reported to be on par with Intel's. Same goes for USB.

Oh really, are the native AMD port not all that fast? I thought they would be similar to the native Intel SATA 3 ports???

I am pretty sure the issue 'WAS' present on the SB700 chipsets but was resolved with the SB750 onward ones.

I wonder about the 990FX chip, i thought they wouldn't have a nvidia NF200 chip yet can't get over Gigabyte having 56 PCI express lanes on a single board, 2x16 + 2x8 + 2x4 let alone the ones used for the USB3.0 and SATA3.

Considering the 990FX has 48 lanes.
