    It maybe a good idea to tell us what CPU that ya goin' to use. ;)

    Nothin' wrong with EPoX boards either as I've been usin' them for years now? :?:

    Well get one based on the nForce2 chipset then as it's the fastest platform that ya can mount one to atm (a good step above VIA now and that's the only other real alternative. No SiS an ALi don't come close). :devil win

    But I've built 2 systems based on this mobo with XP2400+'s and XMS3500 memory, they left here runnin' at 2400MHz, 13 x 185MHz, (easily with memory runnin' at over 215MHz with insane timings). I've got mine now and just waitin' for an XP2600+ to turn up (gotta love that multiplier/FSB manipulation). :D

    I have the ABIT KD7-RAID board---newegg.com for about $116.00.
    Supports everything you want and then some including 8xagp. Get some FAST DDR RAM while you're at it--the fastest you can get--it'll amaze you! I'm running an XP2400+ as a 2600+ @ 2.08ghz and have run it, and am going to again, as a 2700+ for an actual clock speed of 2.16ghz with a 320mhz bus. I have 2 40ggb 7200 Maxtors striped. This baby SCREAMS for the money.
