    GA-M57SLI-S4...I will be diving into this motherboard soon...

    Just decided to start my upgrade path and I selected this motherboard from good ol NewEgg, which should be here around Thursday. I won't get to fully test the motherboard until I have the 3 other components:

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Brisbane Retail
    XFX GeForce 7900GT
    Corsair XMS2 2GB DDR2 800

    What I am concerned about is the memory. I did check Gigabyte's website and it looks to check out but I just want to be sure (especially at that price )

    Anything I should look out for? This will be my first Gigabyte motherboard since NewEgg nolonger carries a MSI board I wanted.
    Phenom II X4 940 BE // MSI K9N2 SLI Platinum // Corsair XMS2 DDR2-800 4GB (4x1GB) // X-Fi XtremeGamer // Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB 32MB Cache Perp Recording Tech // Maxtor 200GB SATA // Sparkle GeForce GTX260+ (216SP) // Corsair TX750W PSU // Lian-Li V2000 Black // Samsung SyncMaster 2233bw

    Hi,
    I have that same board and it's a great piece of hardware.
    As for memory I got some OCZ Gold Rev2 DDR2800. They are rated at something like 5-4-5-5.... but run without a problem atr DDR2900 with 4-4-4-...
    I don't know what the price point of that stuff is over there since I come from Germany but I can truly recommend the OCZ with this board.

    Greetings

    I don't overclock (nor do i ever plan to...)...i'll check it out but I have a feeling its the same price as Corsair...
