I am building a shuttlebox computer for photoshop and some gaming (What ever an 8800gt will allow me to play). My goal is to make something small and quiet and relatively powerful. I will be using an E4500 OCD to 2.7hgz, but I will be upgrading to an E8400. Also I would like to have 4 Ram slots if that is possible. Thank You for your input, Remember as it is stated in my username I am a NEWBIE.

I would like to see the answers on this one. I too like mATX, mainly because I don't like to have a hulking tower next to me on my desk.

I'd look at a G35 or G33 chipset board, check review and specs on the Asus P5E-VM, P5K-VM and GigaByte G33M-DS2/DS2R.

I like ASUS but buy now Gigabyte - they seem to have better build qualities in the way of - the last ASUS 2 MB's were packed rough and some caps were leaning over severly where'as Gigabyte seem to have better quality control.

Suggested MB's GA-G33M-DS2R or GA-G33M-S2.
