I am looking for suggestions for a low cost but reliable AM2 MB with onboard video for a workstation upgrade. I have a 939 Foxxconn in another workstation and it has done well but I am interested in the forums feed back. I already have the chip (4000+ Brisbane.) TIA

I was considering 61xx based boards from MSI and Foxconn. Is there any advantage to the Abit? I have used boards from both before but heard that Abit boards have more problems.

the only reasons that abits may have more problems are:
1) the type of personality profile of the abit user - they tend to be more enthusiasts & hence more likely to push the boards to their limits
2) more BIOS options to play with & get wrong - see 1) :)

Thanks! Decided to go with the MSI K9N6SGM-V board with a gig of DDR2 667 Geil. Both cost less than $90.
