I've had this board up and running as my wife's office PC for a few weeks now. W2K Pro with mirrored SATA, PCI-E video, rock solid, cool, and fast -- she's very happy with it. I may use it again as I have about 25 more to build there and they want to be able to grow with the OS options and new hardware. At first blush maybe a little overskill, but this seemed an affordable board to meet that desire. Thanks for the very helpful review!
