This is the ram for both mother boards:

But which board/cpu would be better to buy for quality:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.305107

OR

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5241602&sku=B69-3218


By the way im simply choosing between those two. If you have any other suggestions please post them.

Thank you.

  1. Same combo but from newegg for less

    There wont be much of a performance difference between the 925 and the 630 so you might as well save a bit and get the 630, the ASUS board is also much higher quality than the ECS board. The 630 has free shipping so the $12 difference between the newegg combo and the tiger direct combo can pay for the shipping for the board from newegg.
  2. Thank you hunter315 I personaly did NOT look on new egg to see the price difference. Thank you for the help.
  3. Asus is generally of better quality than ECS. But I don't quite understand, those are two very different setups you have there.


    Phenom II x4 vs. Athlon II x4
    two PCIe 16x Slots vs. one
    One is an AM3 board / AM3 CPU, the other is an AM3 CPU combo'd with an AM2/AM2+ board (which won't even be compatible btw!)
    One mobo is microATX, the other is standard ATX
    Both have integrated video, but one has HDMI, the other doesn't...


    There's just a lot of apples and oranges here. What specifications are you looking for exactly? What are you building this computer to do? What is your budget range, and what components do you need overall? Do you already have that RAM, or are you going to buy it too?
  4. um yes it will be compatible nofun, its AM2+ processors that arent compatible with AM3 boards, but AM3 processors are compatible with AM2/AM2+ boards as long as their bios supports the processor.
  5. I have the PSU 750watt CASE full tower and moniter i was hoping to buy the ram that was listen up^ but i wasn't sure which motherboard to get. Im going to be using this computer for gaming (manly counter strike source with the new season coming into play) and my price rage is 400 for motherboard and ram and cpu

    No kidding? well you learn something new everyday. I thought these were completely different pin configurations.
  7. I can't say I agree with either board choice.

    You definitely want DDR3 RAM. Here's a great G.Skill DDR3 1333 set for $98. With the rest of your budget, you can get this excellent combo: Phenom II X4 955 BE and ASUS M4A79XTD EVO for $260 (and a free game).
