I dont know if its better (never used it) but it looks cool!

I do have a couple of the Biostar mobos (socket 939) and they overclock nicely. But Gigabyte is a good company too.

it also has onboard video, so if you wanted to get a video card later you could.

Alright, wel I"m having some trouble selling my current rig. Does anyone else agree with that other guy who said I should be alright playing most games if I simply get a nice video card and some more ram?

Yes, it is a placeholder though, if you do get newer parts to just upgrade it is a temporary fix, there is only so much you can fix it up. If anything you can keep your current rig and build a brand new rig and worst case scenario you have another workstation to run crap on you do not want/need on your gamer.
