    Check out the similar board with Nvidia chipset and dual channel memory support: GA7N400-L

    Also about $100 CDN.

    Well thanks for bursting my bubble guys.LOL
    Oh well.The shop I bought the board at didn&#39;t have that other board,plus the board I got has SATA which may come in handy in the near future.It gives me a good excuse to buy a new hard drive right after I buy my new ram and CPU.

    Well,I got it all installed and up and running.took a sleepless night afetr getting home from work but it&#39;s all good.This board is a world of difference from my old one.My temps are super low now,my pu temp has not gone above 28 degrees and that is with my heatsink fan running 1500 rpm.I thought it was a screw up at first but I have tried speedfan and the gigabyte monitor and both say the same,the BIOS also says the same.
    Just need to pick up my Barton 2500+ and some new ram in the next couple of weeks and it will be running real good.

    i think the mobo is great especially with a geforce graphics card that will make some sweet graphical rendering and very good cpu speed if u fit the right processor to it nice one &#33; B)

    @johnboy27, You say you have SATA? Then you must have the GA_7VT600-P-L. Much less expensive than one with Nvidia chipset and SATA (good choice).

    One question... The IDE connectors are placed at the very bottom of the board. Did they supply an extra long IDE cable to reach your CD drive(s)?

    Yes it did come with IDE cables but they were bibbon cables so i just stayed with my rounded ones.It also came with an extra set of USB2.0 plugs for in a PCI slot (added to the 4 it has on board),and it came with the SATA cables of course.
    I am still amazed at the temps though.I almost think it is reading them wrong or else the new paste I put on my CPU made a huge difference.I have to get a chance to put a big load on it and see what they are like after it.

    PS,yes virtualbody1234, it is the P-L model.
