I haven't heard a thing that would lead me to believe their would be a compatability issue. I will say however that the HD4870 is a much better buy as it has a bang for the buck value the GTX280 can't touch. The 4870 comes so close to the 280 in some benchmarks and actually wins a couple that the price premium for the 280 looks like a waste.

Looks like a winner. Hey Warlord, This is the board I was thinking of using for the HTPC my sister is thinking about. I was mistaken about one thing. The initial reviews of this seemed to say you could add a discrete GPU and have some kind of Hybrid Crossfire solution. The truth of the matter is that you can use a discrete card in conjunction with the IGP. That's still ok for my sisters needs as the IGP and a single 4850 would handle 2 1080p streams just fine. I liked the 4+1 power phase technology. As always with Gigabyte this will add stability and reliability out of the box. And judging by the description of the onboard audio, I might just give that a whirl before adding a sound card.

The reason I remember it being wrong was that the temp probe didn't actually touch the die and some heat was lost in reaching the probe. That being said, I can understand it being low as heat will dissipate as it travels, but how would it be high?

Ditto to everything said above. Not to mention two 1Gb sticks will usually cost you less.

Bob's right on all points. If you go to FrozenCPU, make sure the wife sees the prices as she looks. LOL. A lot of the really nice looking cases can start at $500 and go up.

Last I heard the BIOS (And any software that reads the BIOS for temps) is 8-10 degrees c low. Is that still the case?

Good luck to all. I have NO chance on my lowly rig but I will chug along to support the team and the worthy cause.
