anthrax i partially agree with u. that is the sweetest mobo out there but it has been having A LOT of problems. quite a few have been fixed with updates but theres still a lot of drives stuck in PIO, boards dying after a month and so on...
that IS the board i plan on getting later on with my core 2 quad build but its iffy as to say if its fully safe right now.
according to asus they are making a full revision with hardware and software (issues with temp sensor right beside southbridge and and saying system is running at 50C+) and are being shipped end of october. lets hope!
safest motherboard right now is intel's own 975X board. but as for features, remote etc. not that great. your choice in the end
