    Anyone out there using this MB? It gets great reviews, but have not heard anyone mentioning owning one. I am seriously looking to buy it, just want a little input first. P.S. I know that it has a memory issue with the first release BIOS.

    Was your only problem before the update the memory compatability?

    I know huh its never ending ... but hey I look at it this way when I first joined NTFS.org well when it was XP-erience I only had a IBM aptiva 400mhz AMD with 128mb pc100 Sdram, and a 8mb on board vid card, no burner, no sound card, and 10$ speakers, LOL so looking at what I have now, plus my sons rig I feel like I am going in the right direction, Sons rig is a Duron 1100 512mb pc133 sdram, bla bla and more lol ..... :D
