Just received a new order; customer wants her (yes, her) rig ASAP. What's the best mobo, non-Sli around 200$?

I'll do more research today (found the new Gigabyte P35 with DDR2/3 @ DC for 203$), but I have to order no later that 20:30 EST tonight.

Thanks all!

John

Kinda wrote that thread fast... sorry.

Oc'ing: definitely.
USB ports, Firewire, on-board Sound, RAID, SATA ports.

1 PCI-Express slot. No WiFi needed. No Sli needed.

Will be using a E6300 with WD Raptor 36gb in Raid 0, OCZ Platinum 2x 1gb, OCZ GameXtreem 700W, eVga 8800GTS 640mb and Swiftech's Ultra + WC (yes, again...) all in a brand new, unknown case!

edit: forgot to add that she is not looking at upgrading in the near future. DDR3 is not mandatory, but to have the P35 chipset may be interesting. That's why that Gigabyte mobo looks interesting...

Sweet!!!!

I love Lian-Li cases, but yeah..... where to mount the rad.......?????

Don't forget to drop us some pics if you get the chance, you've been putting together some mighty clean looking 180 WC builds, I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with for this case.

Man- that's a beaut! I wish I knew people locally that were interested in kick-ass systems so I could build them- I'd be happy just to have my hands on all that gear- even if it was just passing through. I've tried to get my friends interested but they're far too practical :)
