The 880GM-LE is barely an upgrade from the M68MT, you get an AMD chipset but they both have low quality 3+1 phase systems that will not safely handle an unlocked 125W TDP quad core Phenom II. You should take this very seriously as the Philippines can present you with very hot ambient temperatures to start with, and heat becomes an issue with inadequate VRM setups. You should invest in a motherboard with a minimum 4+1 phase VRM system, and ensure that there is VRM cooling.

 

As an example, of the motherboards you recently posted in your list, these motherboards would work in a safe manner:

880G Extreme3

880G Pro3

880GXH/USB3

880GMH/USB3 R2.0 (with VRM cooling)

880GMH/USB3 (with VRM cooling)

880GMH/U3S3 (with VRM cooling)

 

Avoid completely:
880GM-LE FX

880GMH-LE/USB3

880GM-LE

Hello, googled and found out some price

880G Extreme3 = 140 USD
880G Pro3 = 123 USD
880GXH/USB3 = 80 USD
880GMH/USB3 R2.0 (with VRM cooling) = 88 USD
880GMH/USB3 (with VRM cooling) = 100 USD

is this right or close to the actual?

Is this what you can get it for from a shop in the Philippines? If so, then the 880GXH/USB3 is a great deal.
