Default Which mobo with this processor?

Processor:
Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition Callisto 3.2GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 80W Dual-Core Desktop Processor - C3 Revision HDZ555WFGMBOX


Mobo options:
Newegg.com - MSI 870A-G54 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Newegg.com - ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard

Newegg.com - MSI NF750-G55 AM3 NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

I like the latter one because you can use the onboard GPU with a separate PCI express GPU? Right?

Which mobo should I go for?

I really need help with this.

I'm leaning towards getting the G55 because I can use the onboard video card with my normal video card? Does that sound like a good deal?

I think nvidia stop the support for hybrid sli about 1-2 years ago, so if I'm not mistaken the newer video cards won't work together with the onboard gpu at the same time. You'll probably have to disable the onboard gpu to get the pci-e one to work.

I would say go with this one : Newegg.com - MSI 870A-G54 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

For that processor, there are tons of posts about people unlocking the other two cores on the processor, so that gives you a chance to possibly end up with a quad or a tri core instead of just a dual.

Ive been debating the integrated gpu as well, Ive read lots of posts saying if your gaming to get a board w/o it. Im just not that hardcore anymore and like the comfort of it being there incase the discrete card fails.
