Although the nforce3 would be good too, I can say that the specific ULi chipset on this ASRock mobo is solid. Remember also that nvidia acquired ULi, so they provide the ULi drivers now
ASRock has an extra SATA-II connector as well. It has many extras and for the price it is the board to go with. As I tell others, the chipset heatsink may not work alone if you do some serious O'Cing, so if you plan to overclock get a chipset fan. Other than that the system is great, ASRock actually updates their website unlike other cheap manufacturers, heck they even continue to release BIOS updates for the board and provide new updated drivers for chipset/etc. Mine works fine, even when I use two Kingston
PC3200 DDR 1GB memory modules in dual-channel.
