Best asus motherboard for quad core

Hello,
Can anyone please help me in making a decision to choose the right motherboard? I intend to use a quad processor. I found two motherboards:
1. Asus M4A78T-E (supports AMD)
2. ASUS P5P43TD (supports Intel)

I want my motherboard to support DDR3 memory, so chose the above motherboards.
I would like to play games like COD4, POP3 etc... with my new computer.
I will be installing a video card in my PC.

I'm buying the PC with my salary, so budget is a little tight.

Also, please suggest if you'll find any motherboards that would be better than the above one's?

I am confused. Please help me in making the right decision!!!

Thanks in advance!!!

  1. I'd prefer the Asus M4A78T-E but I'm a bit of an AMD follower. Have you picked out what CPU's you'd like to use?
  2. Couple of question...
    Why do you have an LGA motherboard listed when they are E.O.L.?
    Why not an ASUS P7P55D-E Pro or something along those lines?

    As the motherboard only supports AMD processor, so I think, I'll use a Phenom II X4 or an Athlon II X4 processor.
    I would also like to ask, as the motherboard supports Cross fire Technology, is it necessary that I buy 2 graphic cards & should it be of the same company (Nvidia or ATI). Can I use only a Nvidia graphic card? The motherboard (Asus M4A78T-E) has an in-built graphic card.

    Please reply!!

    Thanks in advance!!
