    Whats the best motherboard out of these:

    1.MSI K9N Neo-F-V3
    2.MSI K9A2VM-FD
    3.MSI K9N SLI-F-V2
    4.MSI K9NGM3-FIH
    5.ECS A780GM-A Black Edition
    6.ECS GF8200A Black Edition
    7.Biostar TA780G-M2+ HP
    8.GA-MA770-DS3 (saw many bad reviews bout it)

    PS. yes i know their kind of old but its a simple HTPC/casual gaming built
    won't use any onboard video, no SLI, Crossfire needed.




    To not open another thread is the: "5-6-6-15" timing OK?

    No DFI in there.As you can see I have certain preferences.But from past experience Biostar would be the only possible recommendation on my part,Gigabyte, ECS, and MSI have not been good experiences for me from the first XP Amds to now.

    The biostar looks to be the best, but why just those? Where do you live? If you live the US you can get a lot of good boards for cheap.
    I highly advise against the Gigabyte 770, their older AMD boards were complete crap.
    GTX says thanks.

    I have the ECS GF8200A board and its one of the most stable board I have seen. Only annoying thing is the OCing. Perfect board for HTPC use and slight OC.

    I would recommend this board and the Biostar 780G board.
