Summary: Great board for gamers, and for users that need the speed for running multiple applications. I normally have several apps open at once. Dreamweaver, Ws-Ftp, Fireworks, Photoshop, Flash, and normally two or three webpages. I also access two external drives frequently. All apps open quickly, no freezes. The board has a lot of room to grow, up to 64 Meg in Ram, makes it very impressive, and the ability to handle a 8 core cpu a delight.
