Well, considering you are comparing mobos that have all kinds of chipsets and vid card interfaces, its kinda hard.

I own the GA-K8NS-Ultra, and I would recommend that to anyone who has an AGP vid card and doesnt want/cant upgrade to a PCI-E card.

I'm pretty new, but I got an ASUS mb (A8N-E) and don't have any problems, though I wish I'd gotten an SLI capable one for later.

I have the Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9. The onboard audio has been giving me problems, its almost like something isn't grounded right, I have some crackling in 6 channel mode, and the mic seems to read a speaker output some where. No system temp probe. The front panel audio connectors are all the way on the back of the board, meaning any cable provided by the case manufacturer probably is barly gonna reach and could block air flow. It has given me no problems with stability. It has a 24 pin psu connector, but has no problem running with a 20 pin psu(no adaptors)

People. THose boards i stated, i dont need to get. Instead, here are the new ones i can get. THey are all under 190 Can. Can u recommend the best one? i need a PCIE board.

====================================

Chaintech VNF4 nForce4 Socket 939 ATX Motherboard / Audio / PCI Express / Gigabit LAN / USB 2.0 / Serial ATA / RAID

MSI K8N Neo4-F NVIDIA Socket 939 ATX Motherboard / Audio / PCI Express / Gigabit LAN / USB 2.0 / Serial ATA

MSI RS480M2-IL ATI Socket 939 MicroATX Motherboard / Audio / PCI Express / 10/100 LAN / USB 2.0 & Firewire / Serial ATA

Gigabyte K8NF-9 nVidia Socket 939 ATX Motherboard / Audio / PCI Express / Gigabit LAN / USB 2.0 & Firewire / Serial ATA

Abit AX8 Via Socket 939 ATX Motherboard / Audio / PCI Express / Gigabit LAN / USB 2.0 & Firewire / Serial ATA

======================================

Also. The board u choose to recommend keep in mind has to be compatible witha 6800GT PCIE video card. They are all compatible witha AMD 3000+ CPU. And hopefully a Corsair Value Select 1gb (2 x 512mb) RAM.
