Asus or Gigabyte mobo? Which one?

Hey guys, Just today my ddr2 socket 775 mobo has stopped working. Due to having a bit of spare cash i have decided to get another one straight away. As ddr3 ram is dirt cheap i have decided to go for a DDR3 socket 775 mobo.

I have narrowed it done to two

Asus - http://www.ebuyer.com/190986-asus-p5g41t-m-lx-g41-socket-775-ddr3-vga-out-8-channel-audio-p5g41t-m-lx?utm_source=google&utm_medium=products

Gigabyte - http://www.ebuyer.com/267114-gigabyte-ga-g41mt-s2p-g41-socket-775-ddr3-onboard-vga-7-1-channel-audio-matx-ga-g41mt-s2p?utm_source=google&utm_medium=products

Also would either of these two support 1333mhz ram as that is what i plan on getting?

Thanks in advance guys.

  3. Don't self bump or the mods will delete your thread.

    Yes both boards support DDR3 1333. Really there is no point in getting a DDR3 board and buying extra DDR3 RAM if you already have DDR2. Unless you are running at 400FSB you are not even taking advantage of DDR2 800.
  4. Sorry, its just i really need an answer quick as i am going to be buying the mobo tomorrow. I currently have 4gb of ddr2 at 667 mhz. Due to the fact that ddr3 is slightly faster and dirt cheap i have decided to go for that. So which mobo would you suggest?
  5. Whatever is cheaper. Both are good boards.
  6. Hmmmm.......Well i have always been a fan of gigabyte and its only a few quid more so i think i will go for that. Thanks for the help mate
  7. Save up for a more current setup.
  8. I generally use Gigabyte as well but since you are putting money in an obsolete system it's generally best to spend as little as you can.

    Like Amuffin said save the money for a full upgrade.

    Yh thats what i really want to do. But unfortunately i am still at school and cant seem to get a part time job. Also before the mobo broke my system could run skyrim at about 40 fps on ultra settings so until i have money surplas there is really no need for a major upgrade

    I wouldnt say it was obsolete at all. As i already said it can play Skyrim on ultra settings at 40fps
  11. Obsolete in the sense that no new chips are being produced. A Core2Duo/Quad at 3Ghz+ is still a decent chip for just about anything but you would not buy one new. They are also very expensive even costing more than a much more powerful newer CPU due to demand.
  12. I got my E6750 for £40 and have it oc'd to 3.5 ghz stable. When i can get a part time job i plan to build a new pc with the ivy bridge equivalent of the 2500k. But for now im just going to get this gigabyte board. Cheers for the help anort :)
  13. No problem, glad to help.
