Hi, I need help choosing an AMD motherboard. This is my second build (my first being a good 7 or 8 years ago!) and I'm a little behind on some things. I recently bought the following parts listed below, expect for the hard drive which I'm salvaging from the old build. I really doubt I'll be doing much overclocking if any at all, so that's not much of an issue for me.

Would either of these be good for what I need. I don't mind paying more if I have to, but I don't want to overpay for stuff I don't need either. Anyways, I'm up for suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Processor - AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor

Memory - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model

Video card - EVGA GeForce GTX 460 1 GB GDDR5 PCI-Express 2.0 Graphics Card (01G-P3-1370-TR)

Power supply - Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Hard drive - Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

I've been pretty happy with my Asus Sabertooth 990FX. It might be overkill for average use, but you'll get a great warranty, and expansion if you want it. But honestly, I am with gokica, either of your choices are fine.
