Why don't you guys recommend a Intel motherboard? I've heard AMD sucks on everything.

Discusman, Where did you hear that? AMD is great bang for the buck. I guess if the O/P wants to spend an extra couple hundred dollars he could.

AMD is far from suck they are just a step behind intel for now beacuse of the core processors and right now the lower budget range is dominated by amd.
