Best parts for fx-8350

Hello!

What do you guys think would be the best mobo combo with a fx-8350 and a r9 290x?

 

And will you need pci-e 3.0 for "future proofing", crossfire and/or 1440p or higher resolution?

 

 

I would say a Saber or a Formula by Asus. Asrock has a version also. As far as pci-3 goes, its not really necessary for good performance. I have yet to run into anything concrete about what Amd's plans might be for pci-e 3.0 . Judging by the lack of interest in building pci-3 mobos it stands to reason that for right now its not really all that important.
