    Just in case someone doesnt understand this, that basicly means more stable voltages, which is especially good for overclocking.

    Not always.

    Even though the ASUS Intel boards use 2 phase power, they STILL overclock better than some other boards with 3 and 4 phase power.

    It does not guarantee stable voltages. A lot of times its just a marketing gimmick.

    Thanks for all the input everyone.

    Im not looking to overclock the board at all, it just needs to run at whatever the processor speed is that I decide on (probably a 2500+). Its for an office machine for a guy that doesnt really know the difference between anything, and I want it to run without too much problem. So, if he ever says he wants it to go faster, I can OC the thing, but for now Ill just leave it where it should be.

    Thanks again!
