Help me pick an 880G Motherboard?

Hi,

I'm building a _cheap_ HTPC, which I hope to eventually upgrade with a decent video card for casual gaming. In the meantime, I'll be relying on the onboard video, so am looking at motherboards with the Radeon 4250.

I'm planning on getting this processor deal:

But really have no idea what differences are important between the following boards, which are all about the same price:

Also, I'm wary about picking out RAM without some more expert advice. Would someone be so kind as to make a recommendation here? Is there any RAM I should be avoiding in one of the mobos above? Price is a big factor, but I also am willing to pay whatever is required so that memory is not a bottleneck.

Thanks!

PS. I posted a similar question a few days ago, and the answers were very useful to helping me focus my questions to the more specific ones listed above. Thanks again for the previous help, and sorry for ~spamming about this boring, low-end, pickiness!

  1. Asrock make quality products, out of that list I would go with them. That board says it supports ram speed up to 1800 (oc) So look for a good 1333/1600 set.

    Thanks!!
  3. Just to be clear, because I am a known knucklehead, is this RAM good with the Asrock board?

  4. Well, it isnt technically on the qvl list but theoretically it should work. If you want to be extra safe go with one on that list.
