Title says it all, looking for a nice X38/X48 board...preferably ASUS, but other brands are fine...No Gigabyte thou. Looking to spend $160 shipped, can go higher to around $200 if you have a board that is really worth it. Thanks:)

Edit: Needs to be DDR2, unless you supply the DDR3 with the board:p

Go and talk with TRT... I believe he has his Max for around $165... I believe he will do something if it's not all ready sold... I'll be checking on my board come tomorrow to see if it was a dead processor or is still what I thought. Dead Sata ports.... but I'll have to see on my end.. I'll most likely be selling it once it found out the problem, or back from RMA

that board doesn't even compare to to the maximus... just my 2c, i have had that board and sold it, and have both maximus's, extreme and formula.... love them...
They are nice and would be great to use, but all go over his $200 max spending...
