Default Which Socket 939 board?

Ok, so my last motherboard fried, so im looking for a new one. Should this one do the job? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136166

also I dont have to re-install a new OS with a new motherboard right? The HDD is the only thing that matters?

also what is the diff between that one and this one?


the first one is the expert version and is 10$ cheaper

The expert one seems to have 1 extra pci slot (always useful) the expert has 8 audio channels for the onboard sound rather than 6 of the other. The non expert is slightly smaller than the expert one, thats bout it i think lol. Expert one looks to be the winner all round. Ive had no dealings with that make but ive heard its good. I LOVE my MSI motherboard, fantastic to overclock and has soooo many options in the bios. Best board i have ever owned and ive owned a few.

One thing ive found, if u r installing Dual core over single core system , ie not reformatting windows, it needs to be reformatted or it wont work, if its a dual core cpu and just the motherbaord being changed then u prob wont need to reinstall at all. Well thats my experience anyway. But best to make sure u have ur data backed up just in case of any problems on the way.
