    But yeah obviously the Asus board is nicer then the Giggy you linked.
  3. I vote asus. I'm just more of an asus guy than gigabyte. =)
  4. i like Gigabyte but the Asus takes the cake for me on this one.
  5. That is a no contest! How can you compare a 890GX/FX board with a 785G mobo?

    True but what if I’m a budget wouldn’t the GIGABYTE be a better choice?
  8. Well if you were on a budget then that mobo wouldn't have been on your option list now, would it? ;)

    If you are looking for a budget mobo then the Gigabyte one is the best one you can get.

    Let us know your budget so that we can suggest!
  9. What CPU are you gonna use, and what are you gonna be building this for? like just for daily use? And what's your budget?
  10. AMD Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition Kuma(which they sold out of as of today.) the PSU BFG Tech. My budget is $500 give or take if parents helps me pay for this.
