post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 - crossfire 8x, usb3, sata6gb/s, $140

ASUS M4A79XTD EVO - crossfire 8x, usb3, sata6gb/s, $100

I want to know which is best. Theres a $40 difference. I will probably be getting an SSD, still don't know sata2 or sata3.

If you are getting an SSD i would recommend the one with 6GB/s Sata. If not then there isnt much point.

USB 3 is smoking fast if you have compatible parts. We just installed a USB 3 card in one of our client servers for their backup drives (USB3 external HDDs) and it significantly cut down the time it took for their backups to run. Full backups went from 3:33 hours to 1:21 hours, about half the time as before.

USB3 is amazing. i got a cheap 16 gig flash drive and i will never want to look back. so easy to download a game at work on the 100mb connection and take it home with me
