I just recently went with this board also. The funny thing was, I was waiting for while watching this post, so i was pretty skeptical. I had absolutely no problems. I'm running 2 g b ram at 667. Everything is super fast. street Deck is amazing being able to run 60 fps. My Old board was a VIA C7 2.0. Now that was a P.O.S. It had no bios options in terms of video and was shared at 64mb of ram, but i guess you get what you pay for. This board I'm running 224mb ram for video. Was an absolute seamless transfer. All the issues I though were software related, turned out to be mobo. Also used these instructions.
