This one, it is slightly more expensive but compare the specs (click on the details tab at the links) http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814125341 compared to http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814161316
Make sure your psu can support any potential purchase, note the HIS states 450W or greater but the Gigabyte doesn`t say.
