Skt 754 won't be out for veince, i think.
There's a couple of linux OSs...and then there's XP64, I think you have to shell out money for it though. But you don't have total compatibality w/ 64-bit OSs. Like...your drives have to run 64 bit, so you'll have problems w/ legacy equipment.

yea...well...that's only my opinion...but yes, people have had some compatiblity problems, and i'm sure that more than me think that way. I'd use what ever you have currently...so if you have XP home, use that...I've actually heard that XP home is better for games, but I don't know if it's true.

That motherboard is good. With that motherboard, the multiple PCIe slots means that you can run SLI and the PCIe 1x ports are for cards that that use PCIe. You shouldn't be looking at SLI becuase it too, has compatiblity problems, and you have to have deep pockets to buy 2 of the same graphics card. You'd be better off with 1 good graphics card rather than 2 bad graphics cards running SLI.
