    I suggest this instead, it's an ATX board. I suggest ATX boards because they offer more expansion slots just in case you need them.

    ASUS M4A785TD-V

    The board you stated and the one I quoted both supports the Athlon II 640 you quoted.

    the ASUS M4A77D i have hard time finding it on dustin/komplett. i'll look further. since it seems more decent then the one i posted, but so far doesnt look good, since mostly sold out or they sellers dont have it anymore. -.-

    if you any other motherboards that is better then the one i posted, please do tell. thanks.

    If there's nothing better then I guess the original board you listed is probably your best bet.

    Wouldn't a DDR2 board be limiting for future upgrades?

    The 4g of DDR3 mem I just bought wasn't expensive at all.

    I recently set a friend up with one of these, a Phenom II X3 , 4 gb ddr2 1066, and a 9800gtx. The board was stable from the get go and performed extremely well overclocking. BTW we got it open box for 50 USD. Great board for the skid... I think that it is pretty much identical to what you were looking at.
