Friend is thinking of upgrading his comp...he will definetly be using an AMD probably XP 2000+. What are your guys thoughts on choice of motherboard. Gaming/application system, im an Asus man but to many out there with SOYO and MSI etc. Whats your guys thoughts.
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.
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!)
