The Asus board you're talking about it A7A266, cost around $176+10. Also uses ALI MAGIK 1 CHIPSET. It is still very early, Asus will keep on updating their bios to make the compatibilty problem with both ddr and sdram. Stablity comes with a heavy cost from Asus= time, so expect plenty of problems for awhile if you choose Asus.

In additon to the warning about being an early Asus buyer, the performance of the ALi MaGiK1 chipset has not been good. The AMD 760 is only temporary and has already had it's problems, so you might as well wait for the VIA KT266.

Sorry, I missed the two-day deadline! Maybe you should just get another Iwill KA266.
