Default Gigabyte Mobos

What do you guys think between these 2 mobos:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128062

Is there any real difference between the two? I know the first one has capacity for 8gb of ram rather than 4. I am thinking about getting the first one bc I will be using xp 32 bit so I will only need 4gb max.

I would go with the 1st one, that way in the future you could go 8GB on 64-Bit. A little bit better future proof.

I also would sugestion going with evga. It's my fav of all mobos

Really GigaByte isn't one of the most revered motherboard Companies.

Go with an Asus or a eVGA.

This 1 is decent if you are not planning to do any crazy overclocking. Also it's around the same price ranges from what you have listed.

That board looks pretty nice. And with the mail-in rebate it will even come out cheaper. Thanks.
