Default Upgrading

Hi,

I am pretty confident with all these parts I bought, except for the motherboard. It was hard to find one that had 1 x PCI Express x16,
onboard firewire, atx, socket 939, x2 processor, and good quality at that.

This is the motherboard I picked out, tell me what you think:
(Wow I am ****ed it is out of stock, just now, does it say somewhere when it will be back in stock or someething?)

This is going to go with a 7900 GT, 2 Gigs, AMD 4800. Please give input on this board, I am not going to overclock, just going to do video editing and playing WoW, not that I think the motherboard effects that much. It also has a nforce 4 chipset which I think is good, right?

Thanks,
Ted

This would be my second choice, but I can't tell if it has onboard firewire:

I don't know

But, you could always get a $8.00 firewire pci card

or, a usb to firewire adapter.

Good luck
