I'd go with a top end soyo dragon...it'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!)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
