And within 2 or 3 weeks the new AM3+ CPUs will be released as well. That Gigabyte is good only it's expensive for your needs. Shpati May 25, 2011 5:47:41 AM I think I remember something. Cannot really remember sorry. But if I recall I think ASUS was better for Intel and Gigabyte was better for AMD, might be the other way around. avaldez314 May 25, 2011 1:19:47 PM mosox said:If you wait a little more, new AM3+ cheaper mobos will show up in there.

I agree, if I wait a few weeks I'll get a better price, but I should make a choice by this weekend So I guess I'll go with the gigabyte one, and the only reason will be to have a socket am3+ board to plan for a cpu update... avaldez314 May 25, 2011 1:20:50 PM Shpati said:I think I remember something.

I just wanted some advice about the 2 mobo that I suggested, and know if the socket am3+ is a good enough reason to make a choice. avaldez314 June 1, 2011 12:25:57 PM Best answer selected by avaldez314.
