Asus A8S-X

at the rate I've been loosing motherboards lately and my insistence of using lower priced boards
for folding. I have found another socket 939 board under $40. the Asus A8S-X is a SiS based
board with PCI-e. this feature allows me to use an nVidia 9600GT for Folding. it does need a
good psu. what system doesn't these days? I realize that 939 is going away as AM2/AM2+ are
reaching 'budget' pricing numbers. I still have socket A too.

Not bad...
I just purchased a deal on Zipzoomfly.com for an MSI socket 939, AMD 3000, and a thermaltake case for $80. It ended up being $92 with shipping. I threw in a GeForce 7600, purchased a cheap Antec PSU, and got some $30 Kingston RAM.
Now I have another gaming machine that will play my old Battlefield games.
