Hi katmandu and welcome to Geeks to Go!

They all look pretty good to me. I personally would go for the MSI as it's a little cheaper than the others - always good to save a few $$$, but if you really don't mind the extra few dollars then the others are good as well. All are quality brands.

Unless someone else particularly sees something wrong with it, that is!

Cheers :whistling:

Cool man, i have already charged up my pre-pay credit card with 70 quid anyway so any of them can be got, i was leaning towards a gigabyte model, which one of those has the better on board graphics for my needs?

Thanks lots!

Well that's a tricky question, it's hard to say! Both of them won't give very good graphics options at all, you won't be able to play 3D games with either of them. If I was choosing, I think the ATI chipset one looks better to me... But I am an ATI man, so I have been known to be biased towards them... :blink:

I imagine they would be pretty much the same. :whistling:
