Quick search says they are 5th biggest motherboard company in the world. Probably a decent brand

But they don't even support SLi...I looked at nvidia's mobo sli support page..IDK about crossfire, but I am getting a NVidia card. better of with a 970 chipset mobo?

Is the 8320 125w or 95w. Can't remember. If 125w you really should go with the 990 as some 970 boards the mosfets fry. Generally the 970 handles the 95w CPU and 990 for 125.
