There are a lot of feedbacks about ASRock not having boards as good as asus. The ASRock model listed above is newer(I will need newer parts because I'm not going to upgrade for 1 year) than the asus but people say that the asus board listed above overclocks greatly.And both boards have amazing features like express gate for asus and instant boot for asrock.
Yes I know I should Have listed the Asus M4A89GTD PRO but since I can't buy through the net I am limited to local Parts Dealers. Problem is that here in the Philippines there is a MASSIVE IMBALANCE of price for example the Palit GTX 460 768MB is $120 in the US it's $170-$200 here and The ASRock 890GX EXTREME 3 is just supposed to be just $10 cheaper than the Asus M4A89GTD, it's $80 higher here.
These are the only good MoBo's I saw there so no other choices.
I'm going to use The Phenom II X4 555 BE (They offer free unlocking so I expect it to be an X4), Geil 8gb 1333mhz of RAM, WD Caviar Blue SATA3 6GBPS 1TB,Palit GTX 460 768MB Sonic Platinum.
First off instant boot and express gate are worthless IMO a fast hard drive or SSD can have you in your OS in less then 1 min. I have used ASUS for years and never had a problem with any of their boards always very stable and OCs very good. I had built an econo box for my girl back in the summer with an Asrock board and I was very pleased with it. The cheap Asrock board I had gotten for her managed to unlock an Athlon x3 into a quad and even overclocked it to 3.5Ghz with little problem. Personally though I would go with the ASUS board, but thats just me.
