Need help choosing between two mobo's for Phenom II 940

Alright..

Originally I was going to get this motherboard with my Phenom II 940:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128384

But there is no longer a combo with this one it would total at $330


Now, the only motherboard combo'd with the 940 is this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138140

Would be a whopping $100 less, totaling at $230 with the combo.


I was just wondering if there is much difference between these two motherboards, and if the gigabyte one is really worth the extra $100


Here is what I'm going to be running if needed:

CPU: Phenom II x4 940
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F1 1TB
RAM: 4GB 1066 MHz OCZ Reaper
GFX: Sapphire 1GB Radeon HD 4870 (I don't have it now, but I'm getting one.)
PSU: OCZ Fatal1ty 550w
LG DVD Burner
Thermaltake Armor +MX Case
Windows 7 64-bit


Thanks in advance for any help. :)


EDIT: I have no plans of going Crossfire, one 4870 will be good enough for all my needs.

  1. Ok thanks, and wow, nice setup lol.

    I won't be able to get it for about another week now, so hopefully a mobo/cpu combo will be back on the gigabyte by then.
