I always disregarded ASRock after I had to RMA a board twice. And never got the thing working right. But that was back in the 2007 era. I've really heard good things about them recently.
TBH, I initially thought of Gigabyte because of that same reason. I knew they stepped up their game but I didn't know they stepped it up *that* much. I had an ASRock back with my old AMD 3500. It had limited OC capabilities but I bought it because it was supposed to have an add on to allow you to switch to the AM2 socket from 939 without buying a new motherboard. They must not have sold all that well because I could never get my hands on one. Probably for the better haha.
Anyways, will you be doing any Crossfire? Looking at the layout of that board, it doesn't look like it'd allow for any PCI devices with a crossfire set up.
