  1. if you are on a budget go with the asrock board (its a good little board i have it)
    if not on a budget go with the asus board
  2. based on ports and connectivity i would go with the asrock, it has more usb ports and a dvi port

    personally i would get this

    Get the ASRock.

    Inexpensive, reliable, solid board.

    6 USB ports + Max LAN Speed @ 10/100/1000Mbps

    Simple layout with PCI Express 3.0 x16 + PCI Express x1

  4. And, unless u already have the RAM,

    u can get newer and faster successor for couple of $$ more: )

    I would get it, ... G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
    $5 off w/ promo code EMCNCHD46, ends 8/1

  5. And if u have some budget left,

    get an SSD drive and even with this mobo it would be a speed daemon : )

    It leaves the fastest HDD in dust.

    Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR60GB 2.5" 60GB SATA III
