As I stated, I only used this board for a few days and it works perfectly. I paid 170 bucks for it but am willing to let it go for whatever I can get for it as long as it's reasonable. I.E dont offer 10 bucks for it and expect to get it.

Respond here or email me @ jbruner@sidgilreath.com if interested.

God, I love the look of Gigabyte's boards. It makes me want to buy it just because it's so damn pretty.

But, seeing as how I have no P4, I'm not going to.

Yes, it has the 850E bios that does support HT.
