Get the Biostar with the 4000+. You'll notice a decent increase in processor speed.

I'd go with the 1st one. It's cheaper and supports faster ram. Cpu is a little slower but the differences are pretty small. Also it has pci-e which is pretty much a must if this is going to be used for gaming.

I recommended in the previous thread, that he should go for an AM2/AM2+ board and the 3800+ X2. The AM2+ socket would make it much more upgradable in the future and can take full advantage of the Phenoms. I recommended this combo:

DDR2, like this: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...874&CatId=2261
And that's an amazing price after the rebate.

DDR2 is newer technology. It is faster, and uses less power than DDR. Almost all motherboards on the market ATM take DDR2 memory.
