that board you chose has the last gen chip set on it. i havnt read any of the thread, but this is probably the best board for the price as far as AMD boards

Sean,

Not sure about it being a last generation chip set. I do know the Gigabyte has a number of reasons for purchasing over the ASUS you listed:

1. Price: Gigabyte and New Egg got together and lowered the price $30...yes, from $139.99 to $104.99.

2. USB 3: The listed ASUS board has no USB 3

3. Quality of build and reliability: I've never had any issues with a Gigabyte motherboard and I have purchased many over the years. The ASUS MB you listed is having a lot of RMA's at New Egg.

4. Some of my AMD friends who are deeply involved with AMD suggested I purchase the Gigabyte MB because they have done extensive testing with it and tell me it is one of the best for the price at this place and time.

Thanks for your reply. I was able to read some more on the ASUS MB and it helped me to be more informed.

Have a good one!

Soar
