    yes get the ud3. back when i got the asrock 990fx extreme 4, it was cheaper, but now it seems that the ud3 is cheaper than that even here.

    but the PCIE slots for ud3 are x16 x8 x4 over here.

    the one in mine are x16 x16 x4 :)
    so keep that in mind specially if you want to crossfire.

    the UD3 is at 118 euro , difference is only 28 euro

    http://www.ldlc.com/informatique/pi...e/c4293/p1e48t3o0a1 fv285-570 fv144-7268.html

    plus the fatality has a dual memory system , may be that increase a lot memory transfers
    plus it has a lot of usb ports...

    the gigabite has a plus but it seems that is a hd raid controller

    whats the purpose of the motheboard?

    overclocking with 8cores, then id avoid the majority and get a fatality or extreme9

    general use, games etc then extreme4 or UD3 as long as the .4 revision was revised!


    from my experience and learning, gigabyte AM3 boards are average or sometimes below, asus and their digi-vrms on mid-end boards are temperamental, asrock are solid but featureless, msi AM3 boards have weak vrms.

    I'm not doing overclocking with my future setup. This will be my everyday use and gaming rig.

    Thanks!

    Most of our sellers here in Manila have the rev 4.0 ud3, was aiming for saber r2 but the giga one was on sale. And yea it ran my 8350 out of the box.

    Have fun with the new build.

    that asrock killer board is useless to any mainstream user. very few people will need sas. and since his will be a mining rig, there is no reason for investing even 10$ extra on features that he will never use.

    remember the title says best bang for buck. that doesnt imply how many features/$$ but how many features he can use/$$
