I would go with the Epox 9NPA+ Ultra before the AN8 Ultra. The AN8 has issues with 1T command rate. I don't know why you would be skeptical about the 9NPA+Ultra, it's a fantastic board and I haven't heard much complaints about it at all from users. Look at all the reviews from end users at newegg, the fact that it won Anandtechs Gold Editors Choice Award and it's price tag is nice as well. The Epox also has SATAII (nF4 Ultra support) and is backward compatible with SATA150.Pentium 4 650
Asus P5WD2 Premium
4 x 512MB G.Skill pc4300
eVGA GeForce 7800GT
Philips Aurilium2 PSC805
2 x 300Gb Seagate Barracuda SATA in RAID 1
120 Gig Maxtor Storage
PHILIPS 200W6CB/27 20.1" LCD 8ms
