    I have that board, and it works fine. However consider this board instead:
    AsROCK 939Dual

    This board will let you use your AGP card now, and add a PCI-E one later. Got a system with that board too and a 6800GT. Works like a charm.
  2. you might want to check out this Asrock.

    ASRock 939Dual-SATA2

  3. yeah i thought about that but mobos arnt that expensive and i figure by the time i upgrade my vid card i'd just upgrade the mobo at the same time.

    i never heard of that brand so i'd rather have one i can trust.
  4. ASROCK is Asus value edition.
  5. you should try to get a mobo that allows you to upgrade to pci E 16x later think of the future
