Just my .02 B, I'd go with an Asus or DFI board, X38s are plenty affordable, or a decent X48 board.



Like I said, just my .02.

I am with you on that. I have used ASUS for all my builds and have NEVER had a problem. I only used Biostar once, for a build for my dad and it was rock solid as well. I saw this one and just picked it hastily. We'll see.

Which ASUS one did you have in mind exactly?

I was thinking the P5E. That's the board I have and mullet has, we both love it. But I'm a little confused. About a week ago it was listed on the egg for about $105. Now it's showing $224? Something has to be wrong on their end. But I've had both the P5K, which is going into another build soon, and this P5E which I plan to keep for a long time.

Ya, that's why I asked you. I was on there looking at them and the price showed 224. A bit out of my range. I am going to keep watching it and see if the price changes. Maybe I'll try to contact them.

I would. The board has been around for a while now...heck, I paid under $200 for mine, oh, 4 months or so ago. But either way...I've had trouble with Biostar in the past and nothing but good experiences with DFI and Asus. I just hope you can find a decent one in your price range.

Hey Bear, I just found the link I saw the other day. The $105 was an openbox item that's now deactivated. My bad.

I guess my local guy gave me a sweeter deal than I first thought.
