Hello all, on 12/12/10 i bought a ASUS M4A88T-M Motherboard - AMD 880GX - DDR3 - USB 2 SATA 3 Gb/s $100 for my AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition AM3 CPU. It worked great, but i had also bought a Sound Blaster Audigy SE Sound Card and found out i had only 1 slot but now i have a network card and sound card. so on January 29, 2011 i bought the ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 - AM3 - AMD 890GX - DDR3 - USB 3.0 SATA 6 Gb/s - ATX Motherboard $138 This also gave me the new chipset. Well... The XFX Radeon HD 5770 1GB PCIe DDR5 card overlaps one of the two slots needed for my other two cards. so now i buy a Medialink Wireless G USB Adapter 802.11g. I want to sell one Motherboard. Should i keep the newer M4A89GTD for the 890GX chip or sell it and use the M4A88T-M with the 880GX chip. The M4A88T-M sells new for $120, i can ask $95. The M4A89GTD is now $150, 1 can ask $125. So my question is, which is more beneficial.

Thanks guys

The answer really lies in if you are planning to do Crossfire later down the road then the 890GX board is a keeper and vise versa. Other thing is do you want to keep the 890GX board because of the USB3 and SATA6GB support. You could post them both here in the classifieds and see which goes first.
