Still using my 1366 Rampage III Extreme, still not convinced with the 3rd gen 1155 or the new 2011 boards. But my Rampage III Extreme has not steered me wrong yet.

can anyone suggest the best mother board for this processor

Depends on your budget/desire ... As much as I dislike Asus motherboard n actualy just got the M5A99x-Evo board ..... I'd say concider this 1 if your only lookin to run 1 videocard as its got decent reviews .... Otherwise if $ isnt the limit ... A Sabertooth 990FX or the Crosshair formula V ROG board(which actualy has the nice high end intel nic onboard).

If your not concerned with big i/o or usb 3.o preformance, the biostar 990fx boards are also quite good at a low price point ..

Simply put, there isnt a whole lotta AM3/AM3+ boards out there that are "must have's" as they all are prettymuch in the same range for preformance.

I think the best way to choose a motherboard is find the few crucial stats in boards for you particular socket (PCI slots, Ram speeds, etc.) then compare the price/features of each board until one seems like the perfect board.
Dont forget that what we look for in a MB might not be what you should be looking for...
