Do you think Gigabyte GA-7ZXE sounds like a good mb for its price?

I had that board and found it very stable. Now my brother has it and no problems yet. it's running a xp1600 with all three memory slot filled. 512 total. Another board that you could consider is the ECS k7s5a if you need sdram support. I have that board now and it's very stable too. both cost less then $100cnd
