Looking for a new Motherboard

Post by Raizen12 »

Current Setup:

ASUS M2N-E motherboard
AMD Anthlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.1GHz
Windows XP Pro SP3
WD 500GB 32MB SATA Hard Drive
WD 500GB 16MB SATA Hard Drive
EVGA Geforce 8600GTS PCI-Expressx16
Creative X-FI XtremeAudio PCI-Express
2X1GB DDR2 800 of Ram
Thermaltake 600W power supply

I want to upgrade my motherboard, I don't want integrated graphics, nor am I going to be overclocking. So far 2 motherboards have caught my eye the:


ASUS M4A79 Deluxe $199

Right now I'm leaning toward the Gigabyte because its cheaper but I prefer an Asus since I've never had a problem with them. Unfortunately, Asus didn't come out with a AMD 790X board and I'm stuck buying a more expensive 790FX which is why I'm leaning toward Gigabyte which I heard were also good motherboard manufactures. Right now I can't decide so are there any recommendations towards which I should buy? Or do you recommend another motherboard? I'm in no hurry to buy, all recommendations welcome.

I like the GIGABYTE GA-MA790X not only for price but it has a 5 star rating on the reviews. It has all that you need for now and then some!
