Default Good Motherboard?

Is this a good "old" motherboard for a socket 478 processor?

Asus is a good motherboard company if I'm not right?

Seems decent enough... I've had a couple of ASUS boards, and I've had good luck with all of them... good features, decent reviews as well.. go for it.

Many people say that SATA hard drives can't be read and you need a floppy drive to install the SATA drivers. I don't have windows installed yet on the new SATA hard drive I got yet, so how can I install the drivers. By the way, I have a floppy drive, so can someone please explain this to me, I don't really understand it.

Thanks.

The SATA drivers are on a floppy... you have to install them first (3rd party raid driver - F6) before windows will see the sata drive.

Oh, and can I do that before I even install Windows? And where do I get this floppy from?

it should come with the mobo, and yes it's done before the windows install. Sometimes it's not even needed... depending on the board windows will see it right away...
