go with abit, asus sucks man. They've gone way down hill in quality and their tech support sucks. I suggest Abit or MSI. I put together a socket 939 AMD64 system yesterday with the MSI Neo2-Platinum and it's a nice board and quite a bit of options in the BIOS. Abit for more overclockability, but either MSI or ABit should offer you good stability

Yep! Asus has lost their potential. Abit is the best choice.

Yeah I know he doesn't have a socket 939 because they don't make a socket 939 3200+, the lowest they have for socket 939 is 3500+ so I'm sure you are correct about it being 754.
