Srr about that website XD its the only 1 i know of that sells alot and is easy for me
.
The most i wanna spend is 100€to 150€. Less is better tho but it has to be quality.

Edit: i would love amd chipset because i'm in progress of buying a hd5850 and thinking of Xfire later. (or can i go xfire on a different chipset?)

I was going to point out the asus crosshair is meant to be epic. But thats £150, so it might be less than 150Euros. But I'm not great with AMD so not sure if it will fit your cpu.

Also i've seen a fair few people with these

You need an AM2+ motherboard for the Phenom and DDR2, so the options you posted are pretty much the best there are on the site. Between them there is only one difference, Gigabyte has 790X (so no IGP) and Asus has 790GX (so with IGP).

Since you're not about to build the highest end system I would go with the offer in the "Coin des affaires" on the ASUS @80€. I had great experience with the "coin des affaires" products - they're like newegg's refurbished. You have 2 months of warranty in which to realise if something is wrong with the mobo. I have my graphics card, motherboard, CPU cooler and a few other parts from the "coin" et tout va bien avec
The only thing is that 80€ Asus comes with no accesories like cables and drivers, but you probably have a ton of them laying around anyway, like any computer geek.

Take the one off the back of your dead motherboard. I don't read/speak French otherwise I'd help you out, but I am 99% certain that motherboard would come with a back plate.

Although listed as AM2, I doubt there's a difference with the retention between AM2/AM2+/AM3.

If there is, let me know.
