both motherboars are similar to each other pick one of your own choice.. But i would go with gigabyte cause it has higher standard. I'm not sure the OS will work fine.

Ok looks like I'll be getting the gigabyte motherboard. But I'm still a little concerned about the OS not working.
Guess I will post a question about win 7 in the win 7 section. Thanks for the help.
