    They pretty much have the same features except the 760 has firewire. I prefer VIA chipsets over SIS.

    A better choice would be MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum with the Nvidia 250 Chipset.
    This is considered by most to be THE mobo for a socket-939 AMD64, as long as you don't require PCI-Express.

    Just went through the same process (although I opted for the Abit AV8)...my research indicated that the 2 Gigabyte GA-K8S760M was the better of the two. To be honest, if you're not doing anything funky to the board, you wont notice the differences.
