Windows 7: thought i knew which mobo to buy, it was removed from new egg

thought i knew which mobo to buy, it was removed from new egg

idk if the ASRock 990FX EXTREME3 mobo i was looking at is only out of stock or if its gone, but i have to go back and ask for help, i was looking at gigabyte boards. but i need some specifics and asthetics counts...

am3/am3+
preferably 3 pcie 16
2+ pcie 1
atleast 1 pci
quad channel ram, but if possible but not rquierd, i like being able to go to 32 gb of ram
usb 3.0 and 2.0
sata 3.0 6gb/ps
prety decent heat sinks
i like matte gunmetal and charcole black

but heres the kicker, i need this under $160

to be honest, if the ASRock 990FX EXTREME3 is worth 140 from somewone else instead of 120 from new egg, ill go for it, but i dont get the point in spending money if its not worth it in the long run.

another board i looked at was ASRock 990FX EXTREME4 the extreme 4 model looked interesting but i need more black and less blue and white.i can MAKE it work but i would need a little bit more assurance its worth the money

It's still there... Newegg.com - Computer Hardware, Motherboards, AMD Motherboards, ASRock, AM3+

Sorry, it's the ASRock 990FX Extreme4, the 3 has been deactivated, no longer available.

This is likely why they are getting hard to find,

AMD 1090FX and 1070 Chipsets Disclosed, No PCI Express 3.0 | techPowerUp

new chipset coming soon so old gets discontinued, making it a matter of supply and demand.

Hope you meant 4 slots and not quad channel, as there isn't an AMD CPU made (yet, and no idea if there will be) that supports running ram in quad channel.

no i know, its a "marketing gimmick" as of now doesnt exist, but sounds cooler than just saying 4 slots

I think going with the 990X or 990FX chipset will make you a bit more future proof.

With NewEgg you have to be patient. They revamp their site every day. Could very well be that the board is back next week. I assume you get their email feed. If not, subscribe.
