Well looks like I may have answered my own question on my current system. Yes it may work, how well is the big question. I guess I was looking up the wrong thing I should have been looking for the SB600 compatiblity and from what I've read sounds like it giving people many headaches. As for the other mother board I've had no luck on that yet. I guess I have to keep looking.
