Hello, I am planning to upgrade my motherboard soon mainly due to it only having standard pcie 1 connections when I am using a 970 and possibly going either sli or going for a 1070. I would ideally want a motherboard with pcie 3.0 2x and a few usb 3.0 ports to. I am just unsure on what manufacturer or which boards themselves are the vest options. Dont have much of a budget in mind as long as its under £200. Any help would be gladly accepted :p

The Asus SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 is probably the very best, but no AM3+ boards have PCIe 3.0 that I am aware. PCIe 3.0 will be a function of the processor when the AM4 boards and their Zen CPUs arrive.

This is a bit dated, but should rest your fears of settling for using PCIe 2.0: https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Impact-of-PCI-E-Speed-on-Gaming-Performance-518/

List your motherboard about all boards that will run a 8350 should have PCI-E X16 at 2.0
Forget about SLI get the 1070.
