It looks like a budget build, so I highly recommend this mobo:

to the guy above. why would he need a mobo that is mATX, and if u've read reviews (not customer, like actually OC'd and stuff) you'll see that its not that great. and why would he need onboard video if hes getting a GPU. anywayz.

here is a great board, that i myself will be getting with that CPU

i had been eyeing this mobo http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813131013 for a while...is it better than the MSI?

oh and i had to switch memory because the other was out of stock. will this one still work with both of those motherboards? http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231018

Im sorry im clueless when it comes to compatibility

mATX is irrelevant, it's the same exact thing as ATX just cheaper and has only 1 PCI-E, x16, 1 PCI-E x1, and 2 PCI slots. If you want to go by Newegg reviews, the Biostar had a little rocky start after it had just came out, but has had nothing but 5/5 ratings for well over a month. Yours didn't have the rocky start, but has had pretty mediocre reviews all along. Again, onboard video is irrelevant, it can be disabled or used to plug an extra monitor in so I fail in seeing that as a con.

The BIOSTAR is only ~$75, much cheaper than the other mobos and does the same thing (and is from one of my personal favorite mobo manufacturers.) However it's up to you, it does have a couple less expansion slots (however with a 7600GT you shouldn't be thinking of the second PCI-E x16 for SLI) it doesn't have onboard firewire, and it has a 10/100 ethernet port, and maybe a couple less obvious differences which are all legitimate reasons to opt for something else. If you think it's worth it to get another mobo that's your decision. However with the $70 you save getting the Biostar over the ASUS, you can upgrade your video card, or maybe the processor and get a much more noticeable improvement in performance.

About the memory... AM2 likes faster memory than that, but it will work just fine.
