I Dont mind flashing for the BIOS thing if i know how it is done, but i am already over my $2000 budget but $200 and my Present mobo is $124, so is there one in that range that is easy to setup, it prly will require flashing for BIOS buts that ok.
May I suggest you downgrading or switching components a bit? Then getting the FATALITY board?? Yes I may..

Hang on while I make you a parts list with some revisions and links to newegg.com. BRB!

well you spend all this money on CPU and GPU and you fall behind on the mobo and HDD, for 10 bucks more you can get a 200Gb harddrive, also get @ leats a DFI lan party, but the Falat1ty would be Ideal, trust me, it will help you in the long run.

EXTREME OCing Board for LESS MOOLAH!!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127212

EXTREME OCing RAM for some MOOLAH!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227206
This RAM is known as VX (VOLTAGE XTREME) and is the BEST RAM around PERIOD.

7800GTX! OH YEAH!! I LOVE MINE!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150104
BTW, this is XFXs newest one, OCed further STOCK then even BFGs, but yet, CHEAPER. 490/1300!!!

EAT THIS POWER HUNGRY AMD ATHLON 4200+ OCed!!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817193003
This PSU is what I use, it is phenomenal! Voltages are PERFECT, within .01-.02 of what they should be except my 5v, which 5.08, but I dont mind since my RAM is power hungry anyways!

Here is the pretty pride and joy!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103543
These things scream, no doubt. I got 21,620 with mine in AquaMark3!

The CPU COOLER FROM GOD, the Zalman 7700CU!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118115
This cooler is what I use, and even when my room is 37C (our AC is broken right now) my AMD Dual Core AthlonX2 4800+ OCed at 2.6GHz (had to pull back the OCing "NEED TO UPDATE SIG!!") runs at full load at 50C!!! Love this cooler!

AH, as to your HDD. Use this BIATCH, it screams and is dead silent and reliable as hell. Western Digital sucks, they sound like 747s taking off, and screech a lot! Need I mention, this is an SATAII drive??
Samsung SATAII Spinpoint 200GB

Oh, and with that, NO FLASHY FLASH required, because BIOS flashes are a pain in the ass if I do say so myself, and I do..

No, SATA is just like ATA. SCSI is hard to install, that is probably what you mean.

Also, don't use that RAM. Use the RAM I showed you. Corsair is half rate RAM that runs hot and is like Intel, backed by a name. If you want better RAM for a cheaper price, then use this:
