So I put together a computer for a client this weekend. I was surprised to find an A88X board for $85. Seeing how this board is for 3rd Gen APU's I made a rather  lengthy video on it.

Long story short I have A10 5800K chip not used (still bubble wrapped) because I don't feel like spending extra $$$ for new mobo to upgrade to kaveri next year, so I wait the Fm2+ motherboard.

Here is an ASUS mobo I am waiting to review. Its not on ASUS's website yet but I have a feeling it will be when the new APU's coming out.

From looking at the picture the mobo seem to have the new UEFI bios, TPU mode and an eight pin CPU power. So the upcoming ASUS A88XM-Pro looks like the enthusiast mobo to get in the lineup
