    Question New Micro-ATX Mobo Needed!!

    Hi Peeps,

    Following my previous thread "New Gaming Case Wanted"....

    I have decided that i am going to go with a gaming cube case, the NZXT Rogue!!

    But i will require a new mobo...a micro-ATX one, that will support my stuffs....

    CPU - Q6600
    RAM - DDR2 6400 (4 slots)
    HDD - 5 sata's (at least)
    GPU - 8800 GTS 512Mb

    Anyone help me out?

    Thanks!!!!!!!

    These are the two worth thinking about imo. Both great quality, well regarded and two of the few that offer 6 SATA ports

    Asus G35

    Gigabyte G33

    Will need some pics of that rouge when you've built it

    I had that Gigabyte board delivered from Scan on Tuesday. It was a choice between that and the Asus, but the Asus only has 1x PCI slot, so that was out the question with me using a sound card and PCI wireless card.
