    Just in the process of upgrading my DAW.

    So far i have bought:

    2 x Western Digital SATAII 320GB drives &
    AMD AM2 Athlon 3800+ CPU

    Looking for a decent motherboard now. Are the following a good call? :

    Gigabyte GA 3PXSL-RH, NF430, AM2, PCI-E (x16), DDR2 533/667/800, SATA II, SATA RAID, ATX

    or even:
    Gigabyte GA M55Plus-S3G, NF430, S AM2, PCI-E (x16), DDR2 400/533/667/800, SATA II, SATA RAID, ATX

    The 2nd one is a bit cheaper but can't c a reason as to why it is? Is it lacking something that the first board has?

    a better list would be what do you already have for this machine... what software do you intend?? interface?? etc??
