Good luck with that. ASUS Sucks in my opinion and have had troubles with them in the past. Support is beyond terrible. Plus there's already been 4 or so people on here with asus boards that won't except their graphics card and get a lot of system lockups with it. Have fun though, hope it all works for ya

I agree ASUS sucks. A better AMD XP mobo would be the Biostar M7NCD Pro

I know it's too late Shoulda waited for more than just one persons comments for some more info. What kind of graphics card do you plan on putting in it? Cause if its any previous generation cards you might have problems and you wouldn't be the first....

EDIT: Sry, by previous I meant the latest previous not like every previous generation ever made...mainly the FX series of nvidia and the 9600 and 9800 and whatever else the FX series equivelant of ATI is.
