    I'd go with a top end soyo's a sweet board, been out there long enough that the bugs are worked out, and it's one of the tops in performance

    ASUS boards are pretty good too....It depends on your friend and how much he wants to spend on it...

    im an asus a7 series man myself. The soyo dragon is a nice board. I just built a machine with an MSI k7t266 pro2 board. It was nice but the AMI bios in it isnt compatible with the GeForce4 series video cards yet. (found out the hard way).

    I am not one for built on components, but if i am not mistakin, the dragon has a nice sound system built on. The MSI uses the 97 shtuff. It isnt that good.

    What kind of video card does he have? Soyo Dragon has some issues with some Geforce 3 ti500 cards. That is why I went with the Asus A7V266E.

    For me it is the...

    My choice has to the the epox 8kha+ got it as soon as it came out,up and running straight out of the box rock solid stable board running at 155mhz without 1 error in XP can push even more,and you can now pick it up cheap for around £85,also works fine with my asus g3 which has had problems with abit boards ie.not detecting during bios(no responses please i tried everything!)
