Has anyone had any problems with Protel with Intel motherboards? I've heard their not barnburners but are extremely stable.

I do believe the stability of my new system is that all the peripherals, 24 bit/96KHz sound, USB, 1394, Ethernet, SATA raid controller, ATA raid controller are all on the motherboard & the video card was also made by Asus ensuring a trouble free 8X AGP functionality. It even more stable than my old Dual PIII 1 GHz. Also, the 2 X 120 Gbyte Western Digital HDs read & write at over 100 Megabytes / second on a continuous basis.
I'm sure if I added 1 card to the PCI bus, the boot time would probably double.
Additional, I have successfully over clocked this motherboard to 4.1 GHz, though, I don't think it's worth the potential headaches.
