The 865 PERL is a good card (mine) very stable. SATA capable, firewire and integrated audio (that's your ICH5). The audio card is excellent. I did a lot of reading on that card before I bought it and they all said that it was better than the 875 for the price. You can even overclock it (very slightly). Further more, if you go to Intel page, you can download an application which is the Intel desktop control centre which gives you memory and cpu usage and tweak capabilities which is useful if you don't know your way around BIOS too much. Like most new MOBO, you can upgrade your chipset easily directly from windows etc... If you don't plan on overclocking, I strongly recommend it.
