    Go for the Asus P5B Deluxe over those two. Cheaper and just as good IMO (you will also want to upgrade to 2GB of RAM when the prices come down)

    BTW you might want to keep all related questions to one thread rather than opening another one asking the same question

    Either would a good choice if you need the features. The Abit AW9D also looks a good choice for the enthusiast - plus a little cheaper than the Asus. However, as mentioned before the Asus P5B Deluxw i965 board is a good choice.

    Look carefully at the features and ask yourself which of them matter. Most people don't use half of the features the high end mobos offer.

    FWIW I think if you want to game, same some money by getting a cheaper motherboard (DS3?) and get another stick of RAM.
    Your system will perform much better in most games with the extra memory and your system will be better balanced.
    As someone else said most of the fancy mb features are superfluous anyway.

    Chnks
