I have a couple of questions.
What is the difference between Micro atx and atx boards.do micro atx have some performance limitations due to their smaller size or it is just the number of pci slots?Should one go with micro atx board for a gaming pc?
Also which motherboard do you suggest between MSI 785GM-E51(DDR3) and BIOstar TA785GE 128M(DDR2) for a hexacore build(1055t) for gaming.
If you have to buy ram, get a ddr3 board. I use a micro atx biostar p55 board, and it has 4 ram slots, hdmi port, dual video capable, and two pci slots. I have no problems overclocking it. So micro atx may work fine for you.
