Default eVGA Mobo

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188002

i got this motherboard for my new pc. it came free with a new evga geforce 7800gt. is this a decent mobo? will it cause me any problems? also.. if i want to upgrade it in the near futue, what kind of job am i looking at? do i just have to take all the cards off, put the new one in, and replace the cards.. or is there more to it

Yes it is a good mobo though it doesn't fit my needs but it should be fine if your not running a 64 bit/duel core Processor.

do you think i should replace it asap? if i get the pc up and running..and then in like 3 months i wanna get a new mobo, will it be hard to change? as long as the new board i get will work with my components, is it as easy as taking the old out and putting the new one in?

tyler, it does in fact work with dual core AND 64 bit processors seeing as all AMDs are 32/64 variable processing AND you can run windows x64 on it, i don't know about who manufacture's it but my experience so far with eVGA has been great and even if the board sucks they will help you in any way they can to fix it.
