I just upgraded my PC to the following:

GA-K8NProSLI
2 gig PC 3200 (dual channel 4 x 512mb)
AMD Athlon 64 3200+
EVGA 7600GT
Seagate 250GB Sata2

So far I've had the following issues (which I am sad to say are common based on my google results...):

Temporary freeze on XP scrolling bar screen during boot up
- requested the firmware for my drive that should fix this.
BF2 drops connection all the time now
- Seems to be related to the nForce4 chipset based on many of the threads in this and other forums.

Now I noticed that occassionally when I boot, my usb mouse is dead, requiring a reboot to get it back online. I don't know what to think at this point. I've had MSI, Epox and Tyan boards in the past and had always heard the Gigabyte and Asus were a notch better. Now I have this board and I'm having nothing but very annoying problems with it!!! Has anybody been totally satisfied with this board? If so, please post your specs.

Don't really have any ideas on your problems, except to make sure you have the newest bios, version F9. I have had zero problems with my rig, specs in sig.
