I built my last system from Christmas 2010. I'm now on my third warranty replacement. The mobo seems to keep having issues where is can't use dual channel on memory. My memory is fine. Now my mobo seems like it's starting to fail again -not wanting to wake up from sleep, occasional BSOD. I'm considering if I send this Asus one back again to buy a new MOBO as well. This board had everything I wanted but it just doesn't seem reliable. My problem in looking at the reviews in Newegg, I don't see a board that has real high reviews. Are there consistent problems with AM3+ boards?

I picked gigabyte because my previous AMD build was a gigabyte board that is still running strong but it's not DDR3 board for my 1075T.

I don't play games. I use this PC for everything else. Surf internet, watch blu-ray, edit pictures Photoshop CS5 and render HD video content with Adobe Encore.

There doesn't seem to be a great AMD AM3+ board with onboard graphics. Any suggestions?

Go with the last one. GA-990FXA-UD3 You will get 2x4gb ram free for $125. You dont need much more feature as you do not gaming. No need extra PCI-e slot for you.

If you dont need the free ram, just sell it. 990FXA-UD3 is more than enough for you.
