    I have a BIOSTAR TA790GX XE en-route from NewEgg as I type this. This will be the replacement board for my HTPC Cube.

    It should arrive on Monday 03/09/2009, and Subsider and I are throwing it together. I've built tons of pc's myself, but I'm going to be taking off all the heatsinks and placing premium thermal paste on the Video Card and Motherboard Chipsets, and I wanted his experience in that area to avoid any problems.

    I'm throwing the following into this rebuild:

    Mobo: BIOSTAR TA790GX XE
    CPU: AMD Phenom 9850 BE (one with fixed B3 Stepping, and was in the desk drawer)
    RAM: G.Skill 4GB (2x 2GB) DDR2 800MHz Ram (4-4-4-12 Timings)
    Video Card: eVGA GeForce 9800 GTX+ Superclocked (for future HTPC service)
    Hard Drive: Western Digital VelociRaptor 300GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA II
    Optical Drive: (2x Qty.) LG Black 22x DVD Burners +/- /R/RW/RAM w/ Light Scribe

    All this is going into my Thermaltake LanBox Lite that I posted pics of in THIS THREAD. This upgrade will allow me to continue to have a main pc that's speedy enough to be a good gaming pc now, and excellent HTPC after I get my new Watercooled System designed and built.

    *EDIT* I'll report on it's performance after I've had some time to mess with it.
