Re: Which AM3 mobo is better?
They are around $170 for the lowest one. you can also check for open box ones too. I don't remember who but someone on this forum got one the other day. It was the ASUS M4A79T deluxe which is one of if not the best AM3 board out there right now for $130. The board usually retails for $200. But being an open box item you are not guaranteed to get the accesories that come with a mobo usually so if you need all the accessories such as SATA cables and stuff that come with the board it might not be that great of a deal for you but worth looking at. The other thing is they are refund only most of the time so if it is dead you have to return it and get a different board but they test them im sure before reselling them.
