ECS A790GXM-AD3 Motherboard and AMD ADX635WFGIBOX Athlon II X4 635 Quad Core Processor
AMD Athlon II X4 635 Propus 2.9GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor ADX635WFGMBOX
and ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard

They both cost the same. One is 180 the other is 200 with 20 mail in rebate.

I don't know which one to get?

Also is there a better cheaper motherboard than theses two?

id pay the extra 20 bucks and go with the asus 790 motherboard combo.. i mean its pretty much the same thing.. but asus is tried and true.. i have the asus 785g am3 evo.. and i can tell you its an awesome board.. and yours would be a step up from mine. so ya.. ima have to say go with the one from newegg..

Or you could look for a combo with a newer ASUS or Gigabyte 870 chipset motherboard that includes USB3 for probably not much more.

ECS I wont recommend without a professional review of the specific motherboard. They make some good ones and some junk.
