Re: ~$1200 Conroe comp, look good?
Well the Asus boards have BIOS problems also, but its a quick fix... I bought the Asus P5W DH MoBo, and sometimes it comes with an outdated version of the BIOS... all you have to do is either flash it, or call Asus and they will send you a new BIOS chip.
The next thing up from that are the $250 mobo's, and I think thats out of youre budget.
