What do you folks think of the MSI boards, particularly the
K8N Neo4 Platinum SLI, I've heard nothing but good things about this board and am very close to buying it (I don't need SLI though and will be buying the "normal" version) I keep reading about the different boards and DFI and MSI are the ones I'm thinking about. I am leaning toward MSI mainly because it has 3 regular PCI slots vs 2 on the DFI. I don't know if I need 3 but if I ever do I will be glad I have it

They're all good boards, just get whatever you feel best suits your needs.

Thanks for all the replys. I have one more question too, what is a good hard drive for gaming. I see a lot of people with several hard drives in a RAID, but is it really necessary for all that hard drive space?

Not necessary.
I have decided that a good cheap setup that is fast is a couple of these on RAID 0:
