Can someone suggest one budget/best mobo either in 785g or 880g. Is there a reason for me to choose 880g over 785g if I majorly use it for gaming & HTPC.

Hi.

What is your budget? The 880G can give u more future proof.

I'd be okay if its around $80-90. But then if the features are absolutely amazing then I might shed in a few more dollars, if it seems worth it. I am just curious which one is better for amd athlon x3 445 rana.

This ASUS M4A88TD-M/USB is a little more expensive but much better.

Luckily for me I went for the Athlon II X3 425 [since that's the only available option in Athlon II X3] & enabled the Core Unlcoker feature in the BIOS & voila :bounce:  it turned into a Phenom II X4 B25 processor. Now all I have to do is understand & fine tune the motherboard [MSI 880G-E 45] settings with that of the processor. I have asked the same question in a different thread.[MSI 880G-E 45]

for HTPC, the mATX version of 785G would be more suitable. I don't know about the 880 though, if it also has a mATX version just go for it! As saint19 said, it's more future proof.

There does exist a mATX 880G & that's what I am using right now. MSI 880GMA E45 mATX.
