Default New build and new case for current build.

Hello,

I am building a new PC and upgrading an existing one.
Current PC:
Case: Thermaltake Soprano
Motherboard: MSI K9A2 CF - V1
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 II 5200Mhz @ 2.7Ghz
GPU: XFX ATI Radeon HD 4890 1GB GDDR5

HD: Western Digital 320GB HD 7,200RPM
Optical Drive: Sony Optiarc

I am upgrading it to;
Case: Antec 902
Motherboard: I have the choice of:
MSI 880GM-E41 880G Socket AM3
Asus M4A87TD/USB3 870 Socket AM3
Asus M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 880G Socket AM3
ASUS M4A88TD-M EVO/USB3 880G Socket AM3

I'd prefer an ATX motherboard.
CPU: AMD Athlon II X3 445 3.1 GHz - Socket AM3
GPU: XFX ATI Radeon HD 4890 1GB GDDR5
RAM: Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz

For the new build;
Some of my old parts are going in here:

GPU: Sapphire HD 3650 512MB DDR2

I suppose, I'll look into the CPU Support and look at some reviews for these boards then make my decision. Thanks, I'll keep it updated.
