Which do you think I should buy?
Please click on the links I really can't decide because both are really good.
I can only buy from the local store so there are very narrow hardware choices.
These are the only MoBo's I can afford right now.
Since I had unexpected expenses I decided to not buy the GPU (GTX 460) for the mean time (But yes I will still buy it)

The 1st choice seems to have better features for OC'ing and others but it does not have Onboard Graphics which I will need since I can't afford the GPU yet but the 2nd choice has Onboard graphics but seems to have less features (I'm not sure but please do click the links if I am wrong good folks.)


I will use them with:
Processor:
AMD Phenom II X2 555 3.2GHZ BE (Hoping to unlock to Phenom X4)

GPU:
Palit GTX 460 768MB

HDD:
2x Western Digital 500GB Caviar Blue SATA 3 Total:1TB

RAM:
2x Geil 4GB DDR3 1333MHZ Total:8GB

Casing:
Frontier Noble Gaming Casing

PSU:
Rapter II 500W

Monitor:
Dell Ultra Sharp 20 Inches That supports native resolution of 1600x1200


I am still about to buy these.
Please tell me if something is horribly wrong with this build.
The total cost of this Rig is PHP22,500 ($500) (Excluding Monitor)
I will use it mostly for gaming, school stuff (Adobe Photoshop etc.) and Mild Overclocking.

It's my first time to actually make a custom-built rig.
So sorry for anything noobish or irritating.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR ANSWERS!!!

Cheers,
Tristan
