Default Motherboards!

i know there have been tons of these posts before(some by me), and have gotten helpful answers but then people start flaming each other, yelling, being sarcastic, and punching. so. i need to know what motherboard to get. i know its really a matter of opinion but i just want some input.

i was going to get the fatality an8 and then someone told me to get the asus a8n sli deluxe then i heard that was buggy so then they told me to get the abit an8, but then decided to switch back to the fatality cuz i assume its just an upgraded version of the an8. am i making the right decision? what about this ati board? when is it coming out and how much


thanks!

the fatal1ty should be a really good mobo. Any of those boards you mentioned will be more than sufficient. All those $200 boards are pretty good. Heck, I got a $112 gigabyte mobo and I'm ahppy with it.

Get the Abit AN8. The fatality is over rated, and way to expensive.

People, please try to stay on TOPIC.
