  1. Yep. But it must be rev. 3.1 otherwise it doesn't have AM3+ support. Here's another one

    Do you need crossfire?
  2. I don't need crossfire, I'll use the PC mostly for work ...

    These 2 motherboards are the best that I can get in the local stores (I live in south america... :( )

    So, do you think I should buy the gigabyte?

    If you wait a little more, new AM3+ cheaper mobos will show up in there. 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.
  4. 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.

    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...

    I'm not sure about that... 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.
