FX will be a better choice. More PCI-E lane. IOMMU support.

GX i am using runs well since i am not a gamer. BIOSTAR TA890GXE v5.2 and GIGABYTE GA-MA790GP-D4SH user.

Love my GX.... even though I no longer use the IGP. But if you are looking to game with a desrete card out of the gates... get the FX hands down!

890GX = IGP + 8/8 CFable
890FX = 16/16 or tri/quad CFable 8/8/8/8
I would hit the best GPU my green could buy then see what mobo i could afford hehe
