exactly the same here for BIOS..

I suggest something from Asus, they have a cheap motherboard for socket 939 that has AGP and Dual Channel, I don't remember what it was though...I don't know how good it is though, I do suggest something else from another company if you are looking for the best though

I'm glad you convinced me. It should be here by Tuesday...man, I almost wish I would have paid for overnight shipping. Sigh. Oh well.

Zoom, did you have any of these "random 6800 freeze" issues with your J?
