There is no great difference in the IGP performance wise, toss a coin.
Is that so? Follow up question, will the side port memory still be used for hybrid crossfire config and will a dedicated card make use of it too? Thanks for the direct to the point answer. Maybe will toss a coin later.
Thanks for the link man. I had a headache reading all it and still couldn't decide which board should I choose. Haha. I'm pretty sure you have much knowledge about computers than me. So if you are to choose, which one? I'll go with your pick.
No difference in the sound chip so I would go based on price.
Yup. The only difference I can see which is of a big deal to me is the igp since I won't buy a dedicated card for the mean time. So, it's hd4200 with 128mb side port memory VS 4250 without sideport memory.
ps. Ahm... about the audio thing, is the difference between a 5.1 and 7.1 noticeable if one will only use a 2.1 sound system?
I looked this up and on wiki I found this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_CrossFireX
I have an HD 5670 so I got the Asrock 880GM LE because it is said to do hybrid cross fire with my graphics card. I haven't tested it yet because my CPU hasn't got here yet.
I will post my findings after I get it up and running.
