get the asus, I have the asus a7v266 and it is amazing, (love to overclock) the board works fine for me, and all the results I have seen for the a7v333 have been great. Go with that.

I am not a big fan of on-board sound either but come on, 6 channel sound can't be all that bad... saves you spending some money if you dont have a good sound card right now and want to save the money for the audigy... :)

just my 2 cents...

:D

I have the kr7a and it rocks. Completly stable and the bios features are amazing. I would look into the epox board though. It allows you to adjust the vcore up to 2.00. Just my thoughts.

just wanted to put my 2 cents more... :D

I have seen 3 different boards using the same via chipset... an MSI board, an Abit (non-RAID) board and an Asus board... all using the via 266 chipset and all having between an xp 1600+ and an 1800+...

tell you the truth... the speed difference is minute... you should not be able to see a discernible difference...

heck the new MSI boards are very cheap and competitive in terms of the number of features and they are quite cheap too... corse I live only about 5 miles from this place www.tcwo.com and I know some of the prices are more than other spots on the web but I can order and pick up stuff from the window of the store the same day and that is convenient...

basically if you can THAT much difference (other than for ocing) than you are pretty good and can afford to choose the board you want... as you can see from the previous post I had and going to the link.. the overall performance difference is quite small... I myself prefer the asus via 333 chipset because of the features and the usb 2.0 but the abit has more DDR slots and I am going to be adding clips as I go along and can afford to do so... :D
