  1. Welcome to Tom's Forum! :)

    I assume you mean "AMD Athlon II X2 245 Regor".

    Discrete GPU:
    ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=nlWYrI9wlNIYHAaa
    $100 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131651
    CPU:
    Athlon IIX2 245(ADX245OCK23GM),2.9GHz,1MB,rev.C2,65W,SocketAM3 0601
    Athlon IIX2 245(ADX245OCK23GQ),2.9GHz,1MB,rev.C2,65W,SocketAM3 0601
    Athlon IIX2 245e(AD245EHDK23GM),2.9GHz,1MB,rev.C3,45W,SocketAM3 0601

    Onboard GPU:
    ASUS M4A88TD-M/USB3 http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=Ta95CVPnAzVDwMyG
    $105 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131654
    CPU:
    Athlon IIX2 245(ADX245OCK23GM),2.9GHz,1MB,rev.C2,65W,SocketAM3 0302
    Athlon IIX2 245(ADX245OCK23GQ),2.9GHz,1MB,rev.C2,65W,SocketAM3 0302

    My feeling the ASUS M4A88TD-M/USB3 with the USB3 is worth the extra $5 over the budget, but I've added in the side-by-side the non-USB3 version which is under your budget.

    Yes, that's a good board with decent features.
  4. Sorry, I completely missed your specs "firewire port".

    I'm not a GA fanboy, sure. The trade-offs are no USB3 or SATA3 for the IEEE 1394.
