The more important question is what will you be using the system for? What features do you need the mobo to have and what components do you need it to support?
:tongue: <font color=red>Have you read the FAQ? Searched for other posts on this topic?</font color=red>

I'm going to be using the system mainly for web design, graphic programs, some games and surfing the internet.
I don't know what features I need and all I know is that it needs to support PCI Express for my videocard and 400MHZ for my RAM.
Can't find your answer ? Ask !

That motherboard is conveniently at the store that I'm buying everything else at and it is the motherboard I was looking at getting. And only around $160 CAD
May I ask why you recommend this mobo for my system?
