from your list, i'd probably go for asus. should be more reliable than the others. but to be honest, i'd probably prefer to save the money for a major upgrade (if it's gona take place within 12months).

o ok kool, The Chaintech 7njs which is the 1 thats messed up always detected my 1.8 AMD as a 2 Ghz 2400, so i hope this mobo will keep it at 2 rather than drop down to 1.8

Well, not sure if that was an issue with the board itself or not, but just a bit of info... most (if not all) boards have a clock frequency switch as well as the clock multiplier switches located somewhere on the board that you can flip on/off to adjust the cpu speed - which might be the answer to your problem.

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
