A few I've been considering are these...

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 The ddr2 supported by the gigabyte is outdated.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.

Thanks for the replies. Are there any Gigabyte boards you'd reccommend that support DDR3?

Yep, my mistake. They're pairing 8-series northbridge with 7-series southbridge now?
