Which MoBo is good for gaming. I'm not overclocking.
ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 - AMD 890GX - USB 3 SATA 6 Gb/s. OR
ASUS M4A88T-M Motherboard - AMD 880GX - USB 2 SATA 3 Gb/s.
I have a Phenom II X4 965 Quad Core 3.40GHz and Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2 GB.
Is there a benefit in the newer chipset? I dont have anything USB 3 or 6 Gb yet. :??:

Those boards would be equally good for gaming! The gaming performance lies mostly in your CPU and GPU! Both chipsets are the same generation only difference is more features and crossfire support on the 890GX.

So if i'm not gonna use crosfire, stick with the cheaper one?
And what is the 6gb/s, i have a HDD with 6gb/s but it's still a 5.9 on the win 7 performance index.

SATA 6GB is a faster std as the name says than SATA 3GB. If you have a drive with 6GB get a board with 6GB.
