Well, from the research I've done, the ASUS A8N-SLI seems to be the Mobo with the least/no problems. Most other ones have some major issues so . . . That's about all I have.

heheh

A64 X2 4400
2GB Ram
2 BFG 7800GT's in SLI
200GB SATA WD HD (putting the other on Raid 1 soon)
Koolance PC2-601 water cooled case

I got all my pics taken, and I'm doing an article on it, so I'll have those up soon.

This system currently dual boots OSX and Windows XP. Runs OSX better than my dual G5, albeit the video is....not optimal due to no drivers really. However in CPU ops it spanks the holy hell out of the G5 tower of mine.

Doom3, 2048x1280 130 fps, you ain't seen Doom3 till you seen it that way. Especially on a 30" monitor.........
