My System Specs

Default Which MotherBoard is better for AMD Phenom II 940 BE


ASUS M3A79-t Deluxe

or

ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe (not the wifi one)

or

GIGABYTE MA790GP-DS4H

I someone posted this before but I didn't have the right mobo listed my apologies!
I'm looking at keeping 2 and selling one and perhaps upgrading from the 940 if the opportunity presents itself. Thanks again guys.

I personally think you should at least Keep the Gigabyte one, I personally love their boards and have had no problems thus far.

My thoughts at least.

No ACC on the M3A32-MVP so you can let that one go.

ahh that question again.

out of the 3.

Top choice for overclocking the 940 is the Asus 790FX + 750SB, then the gigabyte.

Asus 790FX + 750SB (enthusiast) /Asus 790FX+600SB (enthusiast too but rev 1 that doesn't overclock as well as the 750SB)
Gigabyte 790GX (mainstream)

Thanks guys greatly appreciated so appears I'll be getting rid of my

ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe

I'm sure I'll have more questions soon enough, seems like a never ending cycle of selling, buying to try to keep somewhat up with computers and technology :)

Thats the story of life :)
I've given up on being able to do that, but Im happy so long as I can run my games.

Good Choices for the ones you are keeping.
