Maybe it will be a good board, we'll see.
Right now I'm not worried about price, I have the money I'm spending, but if I go lower and get better, I'm all for it.

Mighty fine board if I must say so myself.

In my own opinion I don't really like BIOSTAR. So if i were you i'd stick with that gigabyte board.

The Gigabyte board is better than a Biostar board IMO. They are well built and very reliable. They also have an innovative design that runs cooler and saves energy.

I noticed Biostar has only 4 USB in rear.
That could be a problem, I have mouse, webcam, printer, joystick, and much more stuff. I need MINIMUM six, so that wouldn't really work out.
I might have to stick with Gigabyte.

So I will have to buy more?
The thing also has no reviews on Newegg, and I really want something that has been proven, and right now the price isn't causing a problem, so I don't know why I can't go with the Gigabyte?
The Gigabyte seems to be better, and from what nerd friends have told me, most of them use Gigabyte, as they say that is reliable.
