    They are the same board but i would say this one:

    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128358

    Because
    a) I like gigabyte better
    b) Its cheaper and has free shipping apparently

    What is your budget?
    Are you sure you know what your doing (It makes me wonder when you can't tell when they have the same name aside from the brand and model and virtually the same specifications)?

    well im pretty sure i know what im doing, i just wanted peoples opinions on which is better to get because sometimes people have some issues for specific boards even though they have the same specs. so thanks for ur help
    my budget for a motherboard is probably 200 bucks or less.

    If you're going to use the board for gaming, then just go by which layout you like better and pick one. I would say that since they both use the same chipset that they would both be fine. Which CPU are you running? If you are running a Core 2 Duo chip, boards with the P35 chipset are also really good.

    Thank you, im pretty sure ASUS tends to have more compatibility issues than gigabyte, especially picky about RAM i think. I have never actually heard about problems with gigabyte boards and the P45 is a good board so...sure go for it.

    Might as well make a thread along the lines of: "New Gaming Build, Budget ___ "
