Dude, you gotta say what kind of cpu you're using, what you want the mobo to do, what kind of stuff you need on it? Do you care if it has USB? Ethernet (Gig or 100M)? Onboard VGA? Firewire? You havent even said if it matters whether it is $50 or $500! Why don't you start by thinking about what you are going to do, then look for something that might suit your needs and only then ask which one might be best.

Sorry that was my little brother posting earlier. I have a 3700 skt 939 amd 64. Im looking into Sli mainly because the DFI board i was so hyped about turne dout to be ****.


I was thinking about this one:

Im not looking for something fancy because i wont be overclocking. I Just want something good that will last for some time.


I have a 7800gt i was thinking about adding one in the near future.

IM looking at a few but the asus one looks good.

Here are the other choices..

I like all your choices, but I think your third choice should do just fine. ASUS has a reputation for stability.
