there really is no "best" motherboard, what you need to do is decide on what features you want/need on the motherboard and what form factor your going to need to fit in the case your using.

 

then find one that has all the features you require at a price your willing to pay. personally i like gigabyte and asrock motherboards.

 

so you might want an atx form factor, with features like 6xsata3 connections, usb 3.1, usb c port, m2 slot etc. then this would fulfil your requirements and be as good as any other motherboard in my opinion. :- http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813157688

 

cpu support list for that motherboard (yes it supports the FX 8350):- http://www.asrock.co...A-G3.1/?cat=CPU

 

:popcorn:

 

should add if your looking for a motherboard that best suits your graphics card and has a pci-e 3.0x16 slot then i'm not aware of one that is also compatible with your cpu. the motherboard listed and all am3+ socket motherboards i'm aware of are pci-e 2.0x16.

 

does 3.0x16 make that much difference over 2.0x16? this might answer that question for you :- http://www.hardwares...rformance-gain/

 

here's a list of motherboards compatible with your cpu :- https://uk.pcpartpic...u-fd8350frhkbox

 

also if your going to run xfire or overclock then i'd suggest getting a motherboard with the 990 chipset instead of the 970 motherboard i originally linked to.

I know a supplier who can supply motherboards of all brands. And they can provide testing report and most of their motherboards are within 150USD.
Ordered once and the mobo was good.

If you have the needs, you can have a look.

I've clicked the link you shared and I was wondering if their motherboards are 100% original, is there any guarantee to deal with them..

Does their motherboards have warranty?

I want to order this motherboard.
