Asus Crosshair. I have the same exact thing you have right now. That's what I'm upgrading to. Got to warn you though, the Ram is DDR3 on the Crosshair mobo...so you'll need to update that too

if you your going to stay micro atx heres a good choice http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130269 im a asus fan at heart and next choice would be either msi or gigabyte, there for this msi board is decent and the price is killer imo, or lastly there this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136068 id get the msi over the dfi tho, but its all preference, if your staying micro atx those are good choices imo, but if your going full atx the asus crosshir suggest above is awesome

The GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H with its 890GX/SB750 chipset is a better OC'er than the 790FX boards apparently.
