Deciding on motherboard Tags: Motherboards Intel i5 Processors Product Last response: September 9, 2009 11:36 PM in Motherboards Share FraGsta September 9, 2009 8:13:01 PM So I'm finally ready to put a new PC together and I've decided on the new i5 processor. I'm having trouble deciding on a motherboard. The two I'm looking at are: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... & http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... What is the actual difference between these two boards? Minus a few added slots is it worth paying $30 extra for the 2nd board listed? Feel free to chime in with personal experiences with GIGABYTE boards or if you have any recommendations on different boards.

The first board for $109 is on sale with the core i5 750 for $289 in today's Fry's ad, but it's in store only. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
