So the ICH10 or ICH10R is one more criteria.
I am going to look through these though, maybe I overlooked something. I could always use the internal USB and use brackets for the back panel I suppose.
Thanks so much for your time.
It looks like the ASRock ones meet the specs.....thanks a lot! I missed them. I don't know if they are any good but will look into them! Thanks again!
I know ASUS has a good reputation.
Asus are good for boards, but in the past that quality has not been passed on to Asrock..??
, they do make some nice x58 boards now though.
but seeing as these boards dont differ greatly in their performance, & they're not enthusiast models the Asrock may well be perfect for your clients needs.
if he needs more ports & you cant pin down a winner, he could add a USB PCI card..??
