Just a little headway here for guys looking for boards. I just got back from picking up a new 5-3 chassis for the server and while I was in I looked at a couple new MSI motherboard one is 120 and the other 140 CDN, I did not get into reading the book much but looking at the boards they are just what I was looking for previously for a core board.
NO SLI, 4 DDR2 slots, LGA775 socket, 4 pci slots and 1 pci xpress slot and one pci-e slot. 8 sata ports, Realtek 8111C Single 1gb Lan and ALC883 Audio, No spdif out BUT has the nice simple 3 wire spdif adaptor on board, the cheaper board has only 6 sata and 3 pci slots and nothing else fancy they are both realtek lan and 8 channel audio though. These are full atx boards
If I could sell my P5K3 I would try one out. Here are couple links to them, the pictures are not accurate by the looks of it, the board they show is the -FR for both which is the more $$ one.http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=proddesc&prod_no=1481&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=170http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=proddesc&prod_no=1611&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=170
