    785 or 790 am3 mb

    I just noticed a whole new range of 785 DDR3 AM3 board and they are really cheap. Are they really inferior to the 790 boards? (for FSX purpose only)

    These are the only two 785 motherboards worth buying at present and they are very good choices:
    ASUS
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131398
    Gigabyte
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128395

    The specs come out almost even with the best of the 790 motherboards. Do not use Mushkin or Crucial memory on either of these if you are going to overclock

    Thanks so much Ted. This is surprising. So, no huge gap between the 785 and 790, or at least the two you mentioned?

    The Gigabyte looks like a DDR2 board though, is that right?
