Need new motherboard for recent setup gone bad. Gunning with 430W power supply. geforce4 Ti4600, Audigy1. What is the most stable motherboard to combine with these? Gigabyte? The one I am sending back is the P4G8x, because the damn thing keeps crashing or rebooting during gaming. I figure it can only be either heat or power supply insufficiency or motherboard incompatibility. I don't think it's power insufficiency, and am pretty sure it's not heat, since all the fans are working. So, I figure it just doesn't like the motherboard. What should I get?

Customer: (in a thick Russian accent) "Yes. Monitor is working fine but has sparks and smoke flying out back. Is ok?"

In the same price range as your current board? The Abit IS7 and the Asus P4P800. The IS7 includes the ICH5R southbridge's SATA RAID and a firewire chip, whild the P4P800 does not.

Nope, I'm waiting for a big drop in DDR prices (which happens periodically) before making my final decision.
