The price difference between the Formula and the Extreme is not getting you much at all.
The Formula will suit you just fine(and is one of the best, if not the best, AM3-based motherboards on the market). Use the first PCI express slot(the red ones) for your graphics card, and any other red PCI-express slots for your sound card.

Save the price difference between the cards for later, 'cause some nice goodies are coming this year !

Hi vinocks and welcome to Tom's forum.

Do you have a case that support the CH IV Extreme?, even. Do you NEED the CH IV extreme?
