If you are not interested in On-board sound, then save yourself some money and get the
Abit KX7-333R. It has no sound, but does come with the High Point Raid Controller.
I put together a system with this board and have been pleased with the stability and
performance. It comes with an excellent bios and OC well.
You should be able to get the board for about $100.
