I plan to buy a new 939/nforce3 board (DFI, Giga, or MSI). A couple of hours of surfing now has me paranoid. Many problems/issues reported of all mobos. However all the problems were from overclocking, i.e. getting the memory timings "just right". When I built my pc 4 years ago I simply bought a board based on the chipset recommendations of my soundcard manufacturer. I put it all together and it worked fine for years. Am I reading too much into this? I dont overclock, and I buy name brand components (no generic ram etc). All this talk of SATA problems scares me. I think it may boil down to reading the manual before doing anything.
