Angry Motherboard this time...

I've been lookng into a total upgrade and need a motherboard to fit:
BFG 7600gt
AMD 64 x2 4200+
and a couple of 1gb RAM sticks
I'm not too sure about OCing yet so i can't really say on that one.

I was looking at the ASUS a8 sli se but i've heard some bad rap about it recently.

I'd go for the asus sli premium but a lot of people will disagree with me. evryone on this forum seems to hate asus apart from the odd few people.

Found a whole slew of mobos with the specs you're looking for. I personally like the ASUS and DFI boards.

MOBO's
