Request for feedback picking motherboard Tags: Motherboards CPUs Last response: March 28, 2009 1:18 PM in Motherboards Share Craig234 March 27, 2009 3:13:09 PM I'm building a gaming PC, possible HTPC use too, and trying to pick the CPU/motherboard. I ran across a deal for a Phenom II 940 and Gigabyte MA78GM-US2H combo for $280. I'm not sure whether it's a good pick. I'm feeling ok about the CPU, but one site for example recommends an Asus motherboard that runs nearly $200 to go with that CPU. I'd appreciate feedback on what is good to get and why, in particular about the above, but other suggestions if not that.
