CPU: Phenom II x4 955/965

Im on kinda low budget for mobo..
ASRock M3A770DE,
Gigabyte GA-770T-D3L

which mobos should i get? and my question would be that if my CPU or GPU suffers from a low-priced mobo like these. thanks for the help

(i want to add that i don't want to OC anything or upgrading a CPU in the near future)

"Why does it matter?"

Because you're going to get recommendations based on US prices & US availability.

Look for a board based on an AMD 800 series chipset (870, 880, 890) & go from there. Personally, I don't think there's a really bad motherboard manufacturer out there, so unless you have a preference, it shouldn't matter much if the board is from Asus, Biostar, ECS, Gigabyte, MSI, etc. Make sure it has the options you want (for example, 2 RAM slots or 4?), then take a few minutes to google up some reviews. You may even want to download the manual from the manufacturer's website & review the BIOS chapter.

The warranties can vary from 1 year to 3 years. The features you want or need vary by model, even within the same brand and socket type. The BIOS features also vary.

Basically ATX boards will have four memory slots and mATX will have two slots. ATX will have more expansion slots.

One of the boards you posted has 2 PCIe x16 slots, which you probably don't need.

Some features that won't be on all boards: integrated graphics, eSATA, USB 3.0, 1394 firewire, HD sound.
