I've had good experiences with Gigabyte. But Asus is supposedly the best of the best.

About the DDR2-800 situation. You won't be able to even get the memory to run at DDR2-800 unless you overclock the FSB of the board to 800Mhz. That's processor can handle it, but you'll need to give it a LOT of extra voltage and water cooling. Once you get the Conroe, it "should" work fine at DDR2-800. You won't run into any problems at DDR2-667 speeds though.

ok great, i think im going to go with the Asus board...never had gigabyte...might as well stick with what i know.

So heres the final that im ordering tommorow:
AIW x1900
pentium d 805
WD WD800JD 80.0GB 8MB SATA
Aspire Q-Pack Black
G.Skill Extreme 2GB PC2-6400 DDR2 Kit
Asus P5LD2-VM

gonna use the 420watt psu until i can get some more cash.

But yeah i think that looks good. Should be a crazy little frag box.
