    So I'm all about looks when it comes to my computers. Call me vein but I just feel 150USD for a keyboard that matches my rig is worth it :lol:

    So, my old M2N Sli Deluxe appears to be failing. One USB port is dead and others are starting to experience intermittent issues. I want to replace it but there is a catch.

    I have two gaming rigs. One with a green scheme and the other with a red scheme. Both are running AM2 processors w/ DDR2 ram (PC2-4300, PC2-6400). I'd like to get either a mobo that has red or green features to it (not boring circuit board green).

    My max I'll spend is $200 USD. Remember, the more flash, the better. Any suggestions?

    What's the point? You don't exactly see your mobo, unless you've got a see-through case. I'd much rather spend $150 on performance than on a keyboard /:

    Furthermore, I strongly suggest you acquire a motherboard capable of handling Intel chipsets, for a future upgrade.

    Yo, Maphusio; are you pimping your rig? :P

    See-through cabinets, neon lights, the works?

    If so you should post some pics.

    Also; two gaming rigs? Why? Got a kid/friend/wife/partner/husband that plays with you?

    I like how my Gigabyte mb looks. but it's blue, not green or red. lots of colorful details on it though.

    Both of my PC's have windows. So no one has any make and model suggestions?

    I'm sticking with AM2. I have two dual core 3.3ghz cpus that work fine.

    But if I were to go for an intel based chipset, this mobo DEFINITELY takes the cake for the most attractive mobo EVER created.

    Its just 400 USD...


    Edit: I've always had a secondary rig in the living room for anyone to use. One day, I decided that rig should be bad ass too.
