But I have to admit Im a bit baised against the striker extreme 1 simply becouse my first striker lasted less than a day and afterwards failed to post,had to wait two weeks for a replacment,and went trough 3 different ram manufacturers to get the correct ram for the board,ended up with kingston(osz and cursor,arent easily accisible in south africa)
I guess the board isnt that bad if you have the correct setup....

There's my 10 C's worth.
Oh Rich, you mentioned new chipsets coming out, i like to think i follow things on bit-tech news but i must have missed something, what are we expecting, from whom and when might we be expecting it? :) cheers
just be wary of what's coming out in the next few months: you won't be waiting another year for a chipset update like before.
