Not an easy question. They're both 'brothers under the skin' 945 chipset motherboards. Both support Core 2 Duo CPUs (if the Asus P5LD2 is Rev 2.0).
The GA-945GZM-S2 had onboard GMA 950 integrated graphics. P5LD2 needs a discreet video card but it has RAID.
Everything else being equal I'd rank the Asus #1 and Gigabyte #2

Hello etawarchild,

Are you going with Windows 7?

It is always best to check with the software manufacturer FIRST. They will tell you if they have tested the product and the version, as well as whether or not it will work with Windows 7.
Check out the Windows 7 Compatibility site: (There you will find out about hardware and software compatibilty.)
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/en-us/de...
There is a pulldown from which you can choose "hardware" and "software".
There are also some great articles, instructional videos and such to help with your Windows 7 at our Springboard site:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/default.aspx
In any event a lot of the times, Vista drivers will work in lieu of Windows 7 drivers, however, it's not 100%!
As stated previously, it's best to have the Windows 7 certified drivers installed.
Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here http://tinyurl.com/9fhdl5 . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to check the threads available there for additional assitance and support.

the asus is rev 1.02 and doesn't support core 2 duo anyway I have an Intel D 930 and an Intel D805 and I don't know wich motherboard with wich processor to go with . the asus is showing more stability with D930 but I don't know if the gigabyte show the same or more performance ... my graphic card is an gigabyte gt 240 1 gb ddr3 at the moment. I'm gonna change it with a nvidia : 250, 260, 275 :-??
