    I'm currently looking at rebuilding my main rig on this motherboard, and I was wondering if anyone here had any issues/praise for it.

    Edit- If anyone has any suggestions for about the same price range, that would be awesome.

    Yes, it's a personal preference of mine. Although that one you posted is tempting.

    I'd be glad to hear any information you have.

    MK- I'm not much of the OC'ing type.

    Me neither, but it usually means to me that the board is more stable than a reg board. (+ Pauliegs board gives more options for GPUs)

    My fav are the Biostar boards if i use a sound card

    If I want good onboard sound I look to Gigabyte with 889A chipsets.

    Well, I've been thinking, I would be fine with a Normal ATX, but my budget for the Mobo is at max $100-130

    I need a IDE connector, As much SATA and USB as I can get, and AM3/DDR2. I'd like it to have good onboard sound. (DDR3 also works!)

    I'm looking for myself as well, but I figure you lot might help me come to a good choice.

    for the good onboard, look at the gigabytes - they even have dolby digital/DTS encoding in the onboard (assuming you have speakers that can use it)

    Gonna agree with you there mate, I find even though I don't OC much these days (Besides RAM and Shaders) I feel more secure buying enthusiast oriented boards for the better quality of components/Caps etc on them. Usually that translates into longevity. After all, I still have an Asus A8NSLI- Deluxe running lol. And new that thing cost a fortune.

    My thoughts if you are going for an AM3 board is the ASUS EVO ATX or mATX boards. They are very reliable and functional. And if you ever get the itch to OC the heck outta everything they are more than capable. I use the 785G version and no complaints whatsoever.
