This is the motherboard I am looking to get:

The reason is it has 3 PCIe 2.0 16 slots and handles DDR3 2133 memory.
It also can handle the CPU I want to get, AMD FX-9590.

I am buying a few things each month so I can afford to pay more for a 
better system.
I am thinking of doing cross-fire on the video cards. Looking to spend 
about $150 each
on the video cards.
