My System Specs

Default CPU/MOBO Question for AM2 w/ Phenom II 940

Just curious overall what will I see better performance from and which would I be best to hold onto longer.

Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe, AMD Phenom II 940

Gigabyte MA790GP-DS4H, AMD Phenom II 940

Thanks in advance guys love how some of you have some much knowledge in these areas I've attempted google been to the websites (asus/gigabyte) etc but some of that stuff is alien to me

Comp1 (Mine) : ASUS P9X79 LE, 3960X, 16GB Corsair Vengence 1333, PNY 770 4GB, OCZ Vertex3 240GB, OCZ Vertex3 480GB, 600GB VelociRaptor, Corsair 1000HX, Cool Master Cosmos 2

the gigabyte 790gp would be the better one. since it has ACC with F5 bios it can unlock other am3 cpus and overclock PH IIs better.

as for that 590 board. nothing much, just the SLI license. and its probably running hot too
