    Need to find a new 775 MATX board!!!

    Hi Guys/Girls

    Little Dilemma here!

    I currently spent a huge amount of cash @ scan this week and thought my new uber rig of doom would be a winner.

    Problem is the Motherboard - I went with the Fatality F-I90HD, its a nice board and all - but kinda annoying aswell.

    The biggest problem of all is where the SATA ports are! They right next to the PCI-E x16 Slot and my 8800 GTS with ACS3 Cooling (EVGA Brand) Covers all the slots completely!

    I've tried to use right angled low profile SATA II Cables (Akasa) and no matter how much I try to get 3 in (would love to be able to use all 4) I can only seem to get 2 in and the card to sit down properly.

    Ok so 2 isnt that bad - but when you got a SATA DVD Drive, 2 x 500Gb's and 1 Raptor in the build its kinda annoying - I can switch my DVD for a IDE no probs so that leaves 3!

    Anyways so much for Abit thinking about "Gamers" yet it clearly advertised as a Gamers Branded board!'

    Anyways - Does anyone know of a MATX which has 4 SATA ports - uses 775 chipset and can hold 4GB DDR2 6400? (4x1Gb)?

    Any idea's help would be really grateful

    If you look at the pictures the sata points are far away from the graphics slot..... Always check the pictures before buying just to check

    also looking at those boards will a 8800 GTS fit - its going to be very close to the RAM me thinks and on the back of my 8800GTS is a heat sink - will that clip the NB?

    It was recommended by a supplier a while back..but I couldn't find any reviews so I can't comment.

    I'd have probably gone for the fatality or wait for the 1333mhz boards to come out.

    If you need it now..The Asus would probably be a safe bet.
