Actually, I love my Asus K8N-E Delux mobo and AMD 64-bit 3400+ combination. What problems are you talking about?

Here's a cheaper DIF board - DFI LanParty UT nF4-D Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard , only $117. And if you don't mind working on ait a bit, you can mod it to be SATA-II as well as SLI, for no extra cost to you! See:

Of course, you would have to buy your own SLI bridge, but since you aren't interested in SLI at this time, no worries. But this board will allow you to expand in the future if you so desire.
If I don\'t step over the line every now and again, how will I know where it is?

Actaly to mod it you have to have the DFI Lanparty Ultra-D to do the mod. Just get the ultra-d and you will be happy. YES it does have 2 slots but it is not defaulted SLI, you can mod it later on down the road though.

Along with ABIT, I've had good luck with MSI in the past also.
ABIT is a great brand

I have been told ASUS boards were only crap when they used the VIA chipset. I was also called a f#$%n tard for even suggesting ASUS are buggy with AMD.
