ok, i just bought an Asus K8V mobo off of newegg.com. come to find out the damn thing is bad. i was talking to a friend and he said that asus isnt a good board. the problem with the mobo is that the large power supply tat connects to the mobo needs to be wiggled to fire up my machine. ive tried to known good power supplies with the same result. my question is what motherboard should i look into? i want to stay less than $100. any help would be great thanks guys! IDLE i guess you are going to need the specs? i bought an amd 64bit athlon 754 socket with PC3200 ram 512mb and need an agp slot 8x.
