definately a good choice. Intel saved me just last week. my intel mobo doesnt have 2 bios, but it has a section on one that is uneraseable, and lets you recover if ur bios update goes bad (wich it did). im assuming that board works similarly.

Yeah, it looks like it will work great for what I am doing, I'll probably order in the next week.


Thanks, all
