Hi, wonder if I could get some help on this situation; budget is ~500 give or take, can be a bit flexible if necessary

I'm building my own computer (I would like to do some gaming on it, although not the most hardcore overclocking type stuff, some graphics/visual stuff, etc).....

I think I'm going to go in on this 'bundle' deal/promotion at microcenter for cpu/motherboard.

They're giving away a motherboard for free out of 6 different options.

I know I'm in for the Phenom II X2 560, but I'm not sure which motherboard to go with it. I do not understand motherboards very well.

There are three free options.

MSI-785GM-P45 AM3 mATX

BIOSTAR A780L AM3 760G mATX
http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...


BIOSTAR A785G3 AM3 mATX
http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...

and then you can upgrade to these other three for 9.99 more (which isnt a problem for me if they are worth it)

MSI 785G-E53 AM3 785G ATX
http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...

ASUS M4A78LT-M LE Socket AM3 AMD 780L mATX
http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...

GIGABYTE GA-MA78LM-S2H Socket AM2+ 760G mATX
http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...


The reviews on newegg seem to like the free, BIOSTAR A785G3 AM3 mATX, but the sample size is small


Anyone have any thoughts? Appreciated in advanced

Out of those maybe the MSI 785G-E53. Better state your budget and parts needed maybe newegg has something better overall.
