Hello, I'm looking to get myself a new motherboard. I've seen these both at around the same price. but I cant decide which would be best for gaming and media. Perhaps even maybe any other mobo recommendations around the £70-80 price mark.

Spec:
AMD 965BE
4GB 1333Mhz ram
HD5850 1GB

Also in the future I may consider crossfire.

Many thanks

Hello and welcome to the forums
If you need CF support,then go for M4A79XTD because it supports CF at dual 16x mode whereas the other model supports it at 16x4x, and dual 16x is much faster.

The first one has newer chipsets, SATA3 and USB3, the second one has crossfire. You have to decide what's more important to you. There's no SATA3/USB3/Crossfire mobos in your budget, the cheapest one is this Asrock 880G Extreme3:

Or this Gigabyte but it's more expensive:
