GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3P Socket AM3+/ AMD 970/ DDR3/ SATA3&USB3.0/ A&GbE/ ATX Motherboard

Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3

Trying to stay no more than $80 if possible, but which would work better with the AMD FX 6300 CPU?

  • Among the three listed, the ASUS M5A97 R2.0 appears to have the best end user feedbacks. Listed as requiring BIOS version 1006 as minimum to support your FX-6300 processor.
  • GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3P has higher than normal negative feedbacks.
  • Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 was automatically eliminated due to VRM section not up to par compared to the other two.

The Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 is a nice board and it will allow you to upgrade to any FX chip out right now but it is $121. If you are not going to upgrade CPUs in the future and you are on a tight budget go with the Asus M5A97 R2.0
