Cell - I have an A7N8X-X mobo and it's a good mobo. However, if i was going to do it again i would go with the NF7-S. It has one feature that i would like to have: RAID controllers. I think you can get a RAID controller for about $17.00, but that just means you will have to use one of your PCI slots to do it on an A7N8X-X.

Or, i would spend a few more dollars and get an A7N8X-E Deluxe. It supports dual channel RAM, has on-board SATA, on-board RAID controllers, and gets a lot of great reviews.

damn, hercules_upw stole the exact same answer i was going to post. A7N8X-E Deluxe first, NF7-S second. don't consider the A7N8X-X unless you are on a very tight budget.
