its a good board... lots of features and pretty decent performance as well...

I suggest if you can ensure you get the optional wireless lan module since that is one of the key fancy features IMO :)

I'm also considering to upgrade to an Asus K8V Deluxe mobo. Can anyone offer some advice or suggestions if this is the way to go:

*AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Processor Retail
w/Fan and Heatsink - $226
*Asus K8V Deluxe Via K8T800 Athlon 64 Skt754 DDR ATX Motherboard - $140.00
*Kingston HyperX KHX3500K2/512 512MB Kit DDR433 PC3500 Memory w/Heat Spreader Retail - $140
*ATI OEM Radeon 9600 XT AGP 8X 128MB DDR Video Card - $159.00

I'm trying to get the best bang for my buck. I play games, encode video, music, digital pictures and I multitask a lot.

Any suggestions?

its not a bad setup @ all.. the cpu is more important for most of the items you are using and the a64 holds up well to multitasking... as well as for gaming though the gpu is more important...

as I advise anyone who buys a64's :D READ THE MANUAL BEFORE INSTALLING HEATSINK... lol.. its very easy and cools well but you need to install teh retention plate first :D

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
