lol i guess i'm still stuck. The gigabyte is $117, ABit is $144, MSI is $149. Which one is the best for the price, b/c i can still make my budget (barely) with any one of these cards so i need to find the best one. If gigabyte is a good baords then i'll get it and spend the extra 20 on somethin else but if MSI or ABIT is better then i'll go with one of those. I need more opinions.

I omitted the DFI because although you think I'd be OK i dont trust myself witha tricky board.

Honestly the DFI board is NOT tricky at all, the comp in my sig was my first ever build from the ground up. Did not have any problems getting it up and running cept for the stupid floppy drive.

But out of the choices i would get the MSI mobo, that was the oringinal mobo i had planned for my build till sumone showed me the DFI lanparty.

I'm pretty sure that the MSI is what i am going to get. I might wait to build until summer when i have more time but i'll keep you guys posted. Thanks for the help.
