Video Editing Mobo,
This review is from: Gigabyte GA-M720-US3 Motherboard Phenom FX Socket AM2+ nForce 720D ATX RAID Gigabit Ethernet LAN (Accessory)This motherboard is everything a legacy video editor would want. Lots of PCI slots for all those special cards, 2 firewire ports in the back and a third out front.
I'm running a X3 720 with K10Stat to overclock to 3.6Ghz and using PC1066 ram. Everything is nice and stable. Don't even think of enabling the 4th core via Cntrl-F1, only the first batch of X3 were good for this.
A few issues with the NB. It runs very hot but due to location no way to put on a fan unless you want to only use very short 1x PCIx cards. But then again any card you'd put there will get cooked.
