Hi guys,

i'm planning to get a new computer and Ã*m not sure what mobo is beter:

AsRock 890GX Extreme3 or
Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3

they are at the same price; both sata&usb 3; graf integrated; 140Wtpdmax; the main diference is the chipset: asrock uses an amd 890GX and the asus an 880G

I´ll mount a phII x6 1090t 3,2ghz
ram 4gb ddr3 gskill 1333
8800gtx

Ideas? need awnswer quiqly, thanks!!!

Enjoy

You probably won't notice any difference, buy the one you think looks nicer, when all things are equal, that's all thats left.

Depends on your needs. If you plan on using crossfire then buy the asrock board. If not, then I would suggest the asus board because I have been using it for quite some time now. I can vouch for the M4A88TDV-EVO's OC abilities and build quality.

I would go with the Asrock just because it has the newer 890 chipset.
