    I've got about an hour or so until I order my new mobo. My price range is a max of $115~ CDN. I have 3 motherboard choices:

    Gigabyte GA-MA770-UD3 $89
    Jetway JHA06-GT-LF $95
    ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe(Used, ripped off PCI-e slot, not tested) $63

    The M3A32 looks great, as I can just use a different PCI-e slot. But gambling if it works or not... What do you guys think?

    Edit: Just got a PM from a guy on [H]. He will let his M3A32-MVP Deluxe go for $100 Shipped.... Think I have a winner?

    Go for the used Asus on [H], dont roll the dice on the broken pci-e slot. I dont think I would ever buy a Jetway I would go Gigabyte over that.

    I would not gamble $63 on broken hardware. If it was $30, yes I would!

    I'm going with the ASUS on [H] I think, talking to buddy now:)

    @Jr, thought about the MSI, but it is too expensive after tax and shipping:(
