Anyone have an opinion on zotac motherboards? Are they too crappy to even consider?
I ask because I'm trying to build the cheapest computer I can that will use the new 620 quad core.

So far I only have a case and power supply. (400w corsair, and a roswell case)

I found this board:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I could get it for $35 after the rebate... is it wishful thinking that this thing isn't junk or best deal ever?

If it isn't even worth trying.. what would you get for the cheapest yet decent quality board with athlon x4 620?

I would try and spend a few more dollars here and not buy a zotac.

For a main computer I would definitely go for a 780g chipset at least. The one Daggs linked is one of them. I've got my Phenom II x3 720 running just fine on my 780g launch mobo.

I have one of the nvidia ones for a secondary comp cause I got the mobo cheap on craigslist. Even there it annoys me somewhat. Mainly driver stuff. But it's running now... Although I wouldn't put anything higher than just AM2 CPU's in it.
