looking for more of what?
the new lga775 intel boards even allow a little overclocking.
last time I checked the only board with more, reall, was the Asus P5AD2 premium and I went through about 10 of em -- each one had something on it that didn't work properly.
first of all, HyperX is the bitch of high-performance memory. XMS is much better. OCZ is another good one.
Secondly, HyperX almost never detects proper settings via SPD, so you should go into BIOS and check them over. If they're wrong, then set them manually.
i have used a device in the past that you plug into your computer, then run a Cat5 cable from one device to the other, and you can plug the other into your monitor/tv. You can run several hundred feet w/o signal loss.
Well, I'd recommend a genuine intel board over Asus, but the P4P800 SE Deluxe is a good asus board.
Intel does have an entry-level server (glorified desktop board) that features the 875 chipset and onboard video.
you can't beat intel-brand boards, imho.
for s478, you can get the D865PERLL, retail. If you can find it within your price, the D875PBZLK is awsome. Also look at the D915GAGL and G915PCYL in that range.
Honestly, I think you're better off with a AMD Athlon 64 2800+ s754 and an MSI K8T Neo.
But if you must go with s462, then I would not recommend abit. Abit makes some great boards, but they're more picky than msi and asus... So if you're not prepared to mess with it a lot, I'd just rather...
