Foxconn = horrible

If you want a really nice intel mobo, go for an Asus.

Set up your hard drive with JBOD. (Just plug it in the RAID it will do it automatically)

Gigabytes are great, very reliable not really for overclocking though.

I had a horrible experience with Gigabyte... But maybe I'm an anomoly. I tried building two identical computers with two Gigabyte K8N-GSC mobos (or something like that, I'm too lazy to look up the right model) and both machines didn't work. They were flat out DOA. I ordered up two 'inferior' ECS mobos with PCex16, and they fired right up with all the same equipment surrounding them.
