You say you need two PCI express slots which suggests a dual GPU setup? Is it SLI or crossfire? This is pertinent info as the two are not interchangeable. Theres nothing wrong with ASUS boards, theyre one of the leading manufacturers-and in any manufacturer, sometimes there are lemons, and sometimes they just fail. I have used and trust ASUS, as well as gigabyte. Unfortunatly, I have not found any gigabyte boards currently offered in my usual sources, but I have found some good ASUS boards. If your running a NVIDIA SLI setup this
board would be a good option, however it only supports 800 mhz ram (might be able to get more on the overclock) If its an crossfire setup this
is a good board, even if its open box and supports up to 1200 mhz ddr2. The problem is, finding these older boards, at least new-with that criteria is becoming slightly more difficult then it used to be since they are starting to age out.
