Default which motherboard for this set up

AMD Phenom 9950 2.6GHz Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Black Edition Processor Model HD995ZXAGHBOX - Retail

SAPPHIRE 100259L Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail

it was suggested i get a 790 series board and i''ve been looking at the prices on those and they seem a bit pricey. i'm wondering if i would do just as well with maybe a 780 or 750 or something like that.

another thing, do full atx boards have any advantage over micro atx becauase many of the boards i were looking at seem to be micro and to me the micro's seemed a bit more price friendly.

some boards i was considering...let me know what you think please.

ECS A780GM-A AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

ASRock A780GXE/128M AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157139

these are just a couple of full atx boards i was considering, there are also a bunch of 780 series micros i was looking at as well.

If you're planning on overclocking I would definetely get the 790GX seeing as it's got the awesome 750SB. Otherwise, I would go with a 780G. Brands are personal choice. Gigabyte and Biostar are 2 good AMD platform board makers.
