Mobo Suggestions for Athlon II X3

I'm planning a build and was looking for suggestions for a motherboard for a Athlon II X3. About my only requirement is that it be reliable. I'll be running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and at least 4GB Ram. It'll be for everyday use, and I don't really plan on overclocking,. My budget is around $100 or less. A few I've been considering are these...

  1. I would do the asus, simply because asus and gigabyte are the most widely trusted mobo manufacturers and the gigabyte doesn't support ddr3. The ddr2 supported by the gigabyte is outdated.

    Go for the Asus then. It is most reliable brand apart from Gigabyte but like duk3 said, your choice of GIgabyte Board is AM2+ which supports only DDR2 RAM. So the ASUS it is.
  3. Thanks for the replies. Are there any Gigabyte boards you'd reccommend that support DDR3?
  4. Here are your Gigabyte options below $100:

    Personally I recommend:

    It is newer chipset and only $10 more expensive than your ASUS choice.
  5. Thanks for the suggestion. I like the features on the Gigabyte you suggested and think I'll get it.
  6. That mobo doesn't have ACC...
  7. But the Gigabyte website says it has EC AOD-ACC support.
  8. Yep, my mistake. They're pairing 8-series northbridge with 7-series southbridge now?
  9. Thanks for the help everyone. I'm gonna order the Gigabyte today with either an X3 425 or X3 435.
