Depends on whats model are you comparing.


and how can i tell how much wattage do i need for the new computer.
400 Watts is good enough but more if you overclock, add 20Watts for every optical drive you add, 10-15 watts per hard drive.

some people says ASUS is a good brand
I just finish building a PC using Gigabytes motherboard, even though I like the board I like the Asus better. Also if you check Asus driver support, you'll be likely to find drivers for six year old board at Asus site than if you use other boards, Intel is an exception.
