    Looking to buy this board.
    How about three of 'em?
    works well with bargain RAM,
    stable as a brick, easy to set up.

    It's the board I use when I want the damn thing to work THE FIRST TIME,
    Got one in a business setting running 24/7 since last year, no problem other
    than heat...which I fixed by putting a 60mm-80mm adapter on the retail heatsink
    with a cheap 80mm fan.

    I have one - easy to setup/connect etc - worked first time with everything.
    Am using relatively cheap (not unbranded mind) 2700 RAM, XP2500 Barton.
    Can't recommend enough - if I was buying one now (had mine for 6mths) would
    get the upgraded version (FISR ??) with Firewire & Gigabit LAN - only did'nt
    on cost grounds but prices have come down since (from EBuyer in UK).

    Don't overclock mine as a rule as don't really need to - but have clocked
    upto 200fsb which roughly equates to AMD 3000/3200 I think.
