Actually, that MOBO suks.... It is ASUS... If you have any problems, have fun on the phone on hold for 2hrs, and BTW, they don't have a toll free number. I would go with gigabyte if I were you, or MSI... ASUS sucks, I have personal experience.... YUK! I spit on them!!

I wasnt talking about costumer service though, i was just talking about that board in general... i've never bought ASUS anything..lowest i usually go is AOpen. i just liked that motherboard, i didnt really care about brand name

I have had 2 ASUS boards and both have been good. Customer service from ASUS has not been a problem for me, they have actaully been quite helpful. I guess i have had a diffeenrt experience than AMD ZEN. I would say stick with the ASUS board. The video card is preference sicne u wont actually notice a big difference b/w the nvida card or the ati card, well u will in the price. I have had 2 nvidia cards and they've been very good to me, so i would say stick with what u got, maybe try finding a better deal on them though.
