yeah it looks pretty good to me. however, some people were talking in another post a few days ago about Abit not having very good tech support. That may be just one incident, though. I'd get it.

Just a couple things to think about:

Socket 478 is on it's way out so it will not support the 6xx series on pentiums (64-bit)
No PCI-E - It's tough to say but it could be a problem for future generations of video cards
Does it support dual channel memory? (I didn't see)
No DDR2 support

So, in general it will support a current config OK, but doesn't leave much room for upgrading later.
