^ Agreed about eVGA. I only use eVGA. Just had bad luck with XFX, etc in the past.

I wouldn't expect much out of that board. nForce 4? C'mon, get one of the 500 series instead.

get evga. asus really jsut should stick with makeing mobos and there graphic cards are alright but nothing great. Xfx has a problem with overheating like you can find some good cards that don't overheat but theres alot of htem out there that well overheat so don't think about overclocking it and plan on buting a new heatsinkand fan or WC.
