Default Which of these motherboards should i get?

So I've narrowed it down to these three motherboards. I will be using an AMD Athlon 64 3800+ (Venice Rev. E6) Socket 939 processor Which is the best, and which should I get?

Biostar TForce 6100-939

So you are building a micro-ATX style case with integrated graphics? Not a good choice if you are going to be gaming.

I will be building in a Mid-Tower case. I will not really be doing gaming, just really mild gaming. I will mostly use it for multimedia stuff.

Go for the Asus A8N-VM CSM
It has built in firewire which might be helpful for your multimedia purposes. It also has a gigbit ethernet. So compared to the other two, this one has the best features. Firewire devices and fast networking
