I'm interested in buying this mobo but am not sure it will support some of my present hardware specifically, AM2 AMD Phenom 9850 Quad core CPU and DDR2 800 RAM & Nvidia Geforce 9800GT graphics card. Any suggestions appreciated.

Your AM2 AMD Phenom 9850 Quad core CPU won't work on the Asus Crosshair IV Formula AMD 890FX (AM3), it works the other way round thou, i.e. AM3 cpu on a AM2 mobo.

Your DDR2 800 RAM won't work on the Asus Crosshair IV Formula AMD 890FX, it takes DDR3 ram only.

Your Nvidia Geforce 9800GT graphics card should be ok.

Thanks for your info retep888. I guess I'll just soldier on with my present setup
