If you were willing to upgrade your processor to an AMD 64 I would recommend an MSI board. They have never failed me in the past. I'm going to be building a new system myself and I'm going for the K8N Neo4 Platinum. For more information on this board click here . If you're planning on using two PCI-E cards together using SLI there are two MSI boards that support it: K8N SLI Platinum and the K8N Diamond. I'm not sure, but I might have heard that the K8N Diamond is unstable, but you'll have to check that one out yourself. I think you can find these boards all at Komplett for reasonable prices. Another thing to note is that some PCI-E graphics cards need to be plugged into the power supply. I'm have a little trouble finding out information on this :-\ Anyway, I hope I've been able to help.
