The Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 is one of the reasons why AMD has plenty of fans. It can handle current AM3 processors quite nicely and will be there for your inevitable upgrade to their major architecture shift in the upcoming Bulldozer CPUs. Lets go beyond the main reason you’d buy an AM3+ motherboard at this point in time and point out that this particular model offers a robust CPU power regulation system, which will allow for massive amounts of overclocking since they’ve gone to such great lengths in crafting extensive tuning options into their BIOS, and can handle a PCIe X16 X8 X8 CrossFireX or SLI video card configuration, should your wallet or significant other allow for such an expense, or the appropriate high end RAID card to make your storage system sing. Since it’s a 990FX based board you won’t be seeing many other higher end options until after those new CPUs are in our eager hands.
