Default Should I go for this mobo?

Found what looks like an incredable deal from newegg.com. I don't know if I should jump for it. It's the ASUS M2N-E SLI. It costs $50 right now and is compatible with my processor. Should I jump for it?

I wouldn't. It's an older PCI Express slot and has a very low FSB.

I have no mobo now though and all I have is an Althon X2 so FSB isn't a big deal. And I have 800MHz RAM too.

Looks to be a decent deal. It would be a nice match for an older Athlon X2 processor.

Thanks Rooster. This is the processor it would be matched with. Perfectly matched FSB. AMD 5050e 2.6GHz

EDIT: I also want this mobo to SLI with the 8800GT in my sig. sometime in the future.

Yup, both the board and CPU run on a 1000MHz Hyper Transport.
