    I've never even heard of a BIO STAR T4 SLI motherboard.

    Those are all good motherboards you've linked to.

    I recommand the ASUS A8N-SLI/PREMIUM . I had this motherboard for 6 month now, never had a problem with it and that is with a overclocked CPU ( Optron 144 from 1.8 to 2.7).

    The only bad thing I can think of is that you need to mark sure the memory that you brought is compatible with it .

    It's probably a Tforce rather than T4.
    The Tforce are Biostar's enthusiast line & generally seem to have a good rep. although I don't recall seeing much feedback on their ATX 939 boards.

    I would at least try it seeing as you have it.

    so can lots of other boards if you have the equipment & skills - quite possibly incl. the 1 that you already have.

    If you haven't already got the 6600GT & have the cash to spend then a 7600GT would be an improvement or beyond that a 7900GT.

    i already have a 6600GT, but don't mind selling and adding cash for something new,
