Yay! I have an Asus A7N8X Deluxe thingy and it's kinda cool

That's my two cents, btw. It's ace. Sound is great, everything works fine, passive cooling is efficient and quiet

Definitely the Asus A7N8X Deluxe...its on my newegg wish list!

****...I don't think I'm going to have a single PCI card in that thing!

Let's see...

Integrated sound (that's good for a change)
Dual LAN integrated (sweet)
No need for dialup modem...
No need for extra firewire (or any at the moment)
Enough onboard USB ports to last me awhile.

That's awesome.

Alright, so maybe a slot cooler.

I'ld say the Epox 8RDA+!
Or if you can bare the wait, the 8RDA2+ which should have DualLan, S-ATA RAID and perhaps even rounded cables...
You think i'm making this up? I beg to differ, and so does this poster available to download from the Epox.nl website.
Beware, it's pretty large (3.5MB zip file)!

Speaking of networking, I have a Zoom Cable Modem in my PCI slot. With only one PCI slot free, I'm looking to purchase a mobo with 6 PCI slot. One of the Epox-based nforce2 boards comes to mind for a likely purchase.

it is 333FSB, and as its an nforce 2 board it should support 400FSB too.

the 250 number just makes no sense no matter how you look at it.

333fsb is the marketing term...

333 is actually 166fsb (but since its DDR, it comes out to be 333)

so 250FSB is 500 in marketing terms

the higher max FSB is for overclockers...abit currently only has up to 237 (474)

ECS K7S5A!
Good stability, good speed, INCREDIBLY CHEAP, (so-so RAM compatibility). Why not?
Okay, seriously, go for a NFORCE 2, or a board that takes DDR 400. Good luck.
