If you wanna save like 10 bucks on that, for for IDE, its the same thing.

Sata can sometimes gives you problems its what I heard, but I only heard it for hard drives.

... what problems...

I'd take SATA for increased airflow and better Wire Management and better overclocking capabilities.

Why change the motherboard? I'd rather have the Asus myself.

+1 to that. I've heard lots of good things about that board. Plus I'm not a fan of Asus mobos, I've had problems with them that are not to be believed...

My experience with Asus (and it's been over 100 boards now) is about 1-in-3 are DOA. Biostar seems to be moving up quickly in the ranks. Good choice vern .
