It depends how stable you want it, what you want to do with it, and how much do you want to fiddle with the settings. How much you want £££££

The nForce2 chipset is now generally thought to be the best performer for the AMD platform, and stable.

I have used three of these boards in computers with AMD chips and i am about to build another, they are excellent boards, and very stable.

I have also used other boards by Abit and all have been very stable!

if i where you i would certainly give abit a consideration!!
