I have to agree with Him on that one. I put up a post a while ago about DDR2 memory, and the replies did not sell me on the idea of DDR2 memory. After a bit of research, I realized that companies don't like it for whatever reason it is and, like Him said, they're jumping straight to DDR3 and for now, just going with DDR. Something very fishy there if you ask me... I'd avoid it if I were you.

I have to disagree. ASUS boards are WONDERFUL stock boards, with no mods. But when you get to OCing, they do not compare to Gigabyte. Get ASUS if you do not intend to OC, or just want an extremely moderate OC. Get Gigabyte or ABit if you intend on doing some hard OCs.
