Hey man that mobo looks decent and all but id go with nforce chipsets if i were you. Im running with VIA as of right now and there decent for a decent price but if your spending good money on a upgrade go for the nforce4 chipsets and up. Their more reliable in my opinion.

I will look into the nforce4 chipset motherboards, thanks.

What about my other question about the SATA controller, what is a good cheap one I could get? All the reviews I read so far were for bad ones.

Ok,

If I get this SATA controller card:

And this Raptor hard drive:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136012

And only use the SATA controller card to attach the hard drive (not using RAID, multiple hard drives, or anything of the fancy nature) will it work without any problems? Because, many people had problems with it but it seems like they were trying to do more than just hook it up to their system, which is all I want to do. And, I wouldn't want it to corrupt my files either. That wouldn't be good.

If that would work then I would just get that.
