Asus M4A88T-M/USB3 or BIOSTAR TA890GXB

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

in a bit of a dilemma. I'm hoping to build a HTPC that will contain a phenom ii x2 550 BE that will be overclocked slightly but i am not sure which motherboard to pick. Either the BIOSTAR TA890GXB or the Asus M4A88T-M/USB3 - They both have ACC functions only that the Biostar has SB850 and SATAIII rather than USB3 whereas the Asus has SB710 and USB3 capabilities. I think the GPU on the biostar is also faster than that on the asus. I'm really stuck on which mobo I should choose. Asus has 880G and biostar has 880GX

Please help?

I say Biostar TA890GXE.... should cost the same, and has better heatsinked VRMs that would be good for unlocking/overclock

Better yet a full ATX motherboard if you can

Was thinking of going for a full ATX but this is going to be a HTPC/Media Centre so I dont really want anything too big.

EDIT: Good news! The tiny case I was hoping to get does support ATX boards after all! I have £75 max to spend on the mobo. Hit me with some ideas? it must have onboard hdmi.
