OMG, that Asus one is definitely better than what you have now. Look at the bus transfer rates. Wow, much improved to go along with faster memory support. I didn't realize Phenom supporte motherboards were that cheap in price.

I'd say that Asus is a nice step up from your current Biostar. Better performing chipset, more advanced options, it should work well for you. Not a bad price either.

At least it gives you room for future upgrades. Although, I'll be looking at Intel motherboards for myself. That motherboard supports 8GB of RAM. I don't think we'll ever be able to use that full potential for along while.
