At only $180 the GIGABYTE 890FXA-UD5 unfortunately represents one of the less expensive AMD 890FX+SB850 based motherboards.  This is a rather frustrating point for many fans of AMD as that makes the motherboard more expensive than all but a handful of the top AM3 CPUs on the market.  Thankfully the 880 and other previous chipsets are alive and well and significantly less expensive.  Be that as it may, those who want the new features of the 890FX chipset should drop by Legit Reviews for a look at this board.  It is not at the top of the performance charts but it is within sight of them and leaves you to spend the 25% price difference on a different component.

“Throughut the testing today we compared the GIGABYTE 890FXA-UD5 to the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula. Despite my board preferences the GIGABYTE 890FXA-UD5 fell ever so slightly behind the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula. Although, there is one area that the GIGABYTE 890FXA-UD5 fell behind in that is a good place to be lower: the price. Currently you can find the GIGABYTE 890FXA-UD5 for as little as $179.99 while the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula is sitting at a heftier price of $224.85. The question that arises is, is the extra $45.00 worth the ever so slight performance increase?”
