I have thought about getting a SATA PCIe card but I think this Giga-Byte board has more problems than just the SATA port going bad on me. I get BSOD all the time in Win7 x64 Retail. That and it doesn't have Dual Channel memory support. The board is less than 2 years old and it doesn't have Dual Channel for the memory, kind of unheard of now a days.
Yes my Mushkin RAM is DDR2 but it's not rated as Dual Channel. I got them as a pair so they are exactly the same. I hope they work for me...
This is the mobo I am going to get: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131377
And this is the RAM I have: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820146732
I'm not looking to over clock my system, I just want something that runs solid.
