  1. This is a pretty good board for the price. and if your plans change you may be able to do a little overclock on it as well :)

    Personally i would go with the ASUS boards as for a less price in this case they offer more features, and ASUS tend to be a very good Motherboard brand, not to say GIGABYTe are bad, but with the current price on ASUS boards you cant go wrong
