looks like its almost identical with much better reviews
Sounds like a plan. Do you have a way to confirm that the PSU is working properly before RMAing the board?

Also, if you are willing to spend about $100 on a board you may as well get a 900 series chipset and get heatsinks on the VRMs:

put in the order today...i sent both back since i think both are defective and ordered a new PSU same price w/Rebate as the Rosewill and good Reviews:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341022

it doesn't specifically list Athon Processors but i assume it will work with/Asus Mobo and AMD Athlon Processors based on Reviews


actually the Board is $85.00 w/Rebate
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131651

still way over Budget on 1st Build now at $800.00 including a genuine copy of Windows 7


i wanna actually SEE this Build up and running and maybe upgrade from there


Rep. i got @ Newegg is awesome and placed the order after speaking w/them
