Default abit board

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127223

buying a new socket 939 cpu so need a cheap mobo to go with it with an agp slot until I upgrade to pci express then will get a better board, but are those 2 ide channels or is 1 ide and 1 floppy or am I just missing something all together.
looking at this one or the MSI neo (one with agp) probably gonna get the msi.. but curious about this one.

(sorry for run on scentence)

thanks

I just think this one looks cooler, only problem with the msi is the fan over the chip set, I repair computers for a living, and the fan can be a big problem after a lot of use.. have to tke it off and oil it to keep it running.. don't plan on having the board for that long.. but still its a concern. gonna put an amd socket 939 3700 san diego on the board.. got an msi 6600gt agp atm.. gonna save up and get a new board an 7800gt pci express in 6 months or so
