Yah I think the PS is OK and the motherboard sucks. I put the 480w True Blue in one of my Abit NF7 systems and it reports 11.92 volts. That is a bit better I think. I'm very tempted to dump this board (and never touch MSI again. Maybe I'll get an Abit NF7-S as they have dropped down to about $10 from the regular NF7 prices. It used to be around a $20 premium. I've just been very happy with my Abit boards over the years and now do not like Epox or MSI.
My B-Day is coming up, but I just bought a DVD player from Philips that plays DivX too. Best Buy online had it for only $80. I expected it to be pretty cheap, but I am actually pretty happy. It plays pretty much all my (many) movies on DVD or DivX (or Xvid). I'm not really to keen on dumping another $80 on a new motherboard.
