Which mATX mobo?
Out of these two motherboards which one would you pick for an SSF AMD gaming rig to be used with an AMD 5000+ BE and an EVGA GeForce 9600 GT?

ASUS M3N78-VM SLI GeForce 8200


Asus M3A78-EM AMD 780G/SB700

I'd take the nvidia board and use the hybridpower feature to turn off the powerful discrete video card when not gaming. Though i think it doesn't support the 9600 yet i think. You'll have to go with a 9800.

I second the nvidia board, here are some site's that have it cheaper then NCIX.
