I'm thinking of getting a new mobo based on the nForce2 chipset but don't know which to go for. I would like to have SATA RAID 0 and digital surround sound thru coax S/PDIF (hopefully SoundStorm). I will be using dual channel DDR 333 and am hoping for the best performance. I'm leaning towards Asus or MSI, what opinions do you experts have? To those that already own an nForce2 board, are there any problems?

Don't buy it without Soundstorm if you're into gaming at all. <A HREF="http://www4.tomshardware.com/game/20030405/index.html" target="_new">Go here</A> to see why.

I have the Asus A7N8X-DX and I'm happy with it. There're a few issues I've encountered, but I suspect they're more to do with my ancient hardware attached to the MoBo than with the board itself.
