Find me another mATX AM3 board with those features in that case please.

My impression from hearing people talk is that Jetway is not as reputable or reliable as a larger company such as Gigabyte, ASUS, etc.

I haven't owned one of their boards and couldn't find a review on that specific one.

If you need mATX, AM3/HDMI and dual x16 slots, this looks like the only choice:

Gigabyte GA-880GMA-UD2H
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128445

Of note is that the Gigabyte board has no VRM heatsinks, which the Jetway does. If you end up going that route, you may want to double check that the board isn't getting too hot while you are using it.

Those PCIe slots are far to close together. XD
I sort of want to be able to stick two video cards in my system at some point in the future, and that board wouldn't fit the bill.

Another reason why I ask is that apparently the CPU combo deal is ending tomorrow. I have DDR3 RAM on the way, and I have enough money for the combo. In the future I can simply replace the CPU with a quad or hex when I have the money for it.

Well it is an mATX motherboard wink.gif

With those features, you're just looking at a limited subset of small boards.

Yeah, it's a mATX board, and I'm not expecting to fit a bunch of video cards in there. Just two. wink.gif

I mean, my case has room for two full sized cards (one reason why I wanted the NZXT Vulcan), and clearly mATX boards exist with room for crossfiring. So why not?

Although I don't have any personal experience with Jetway boards, that one looks pretty good.... in fact, I've been tempted to get one to try out for myself.... wink.gif

I did find a few reviews of what is basically the same board:

.... and here's one in German:

Well those reviews (or rather, one review and one hardware rundown, and one in german) put my mind at ease. Looks like I'm going with this one and should have everything installed soon. Huzzah!

And yeah, I got some Corsair XMS3 sticks. Managed to get them cheaper then what I liked to before.
