    I bought a Abit kx7-333r Board recently and after the first day it died... So im in the market for a new one. I would like to know what everyone thinks the fastest and most stable board that has hit the market. I need something reliable. Now running my old Abit kg7-Rain (Little Slow) Here are the ones I was thinking about:

    Gigabyte ga-7vrxp (Read forum and seems to be unstable and read a review from Toms Hardware and he gave it 1st choice..Hmmmmm)

    Epox EP-8K3A+

    Also I was thinkin of trying a Asus but dont know much about them. Would love to have some ideas. Thanks

    Specs..
    AMD 2100+ XP
    GF4 Ti4600 (Visiontek)
    512 MB DDR 2100
    2x40 WD 7200 (Raid)
    SoundBlaster Audigy Gamer

    I would like some help on choosing what would work best with these components as i know video is the hardest thing to have work on a new board.

    System is for Gaming Purposes BTW

    I would check out some of Soyo's Dragon series boards. I have the Dragon Plus! and I love it. Onboard 6-channel surround sound, RAID controller, and Ethernet on all board

    Don't forget Asus

    Although I think that your ABIT experience is just bad luck, they usually are fine boards, don't forget about Asus. I have had excellent sucess with them and I am currently using their Asus P4S333 and I am very happy with stability and performance.
