My Gigabyte GA-7DPXDW-P bit the dust...after only a few months!

It blue screens like Jessica Simpson. Now I have to buy a holdoff board while I RMA it (My old ASRock is dead as a doorknob).

I'm getting the cheapest one I can find without a Via chipset. Behold, the budget board which looks pretty damn sweet for $36:

Yes, I know it's an ECS. And yes, I know it has a SiS chipset. My old ASRock had a SiS chipset, and it ran like a champ. I'm just getting this because I'm cheap, and strapped for cash.

It looks like a sweet board for the money. I may put it into an Ahanix desktop case someday and make a mini-rig.

EDIT: I FORGOT THE VIA's CAN BE STABLE WITH PATCHES, I'M GONNA GET THIS:

Kinda funny. considering you buy generic shit, and this was name brand stuff...ASRock being Asus' value brand, and Gigabyte being the world's second largest mobo manufacturer.

I just got some lemons.
