I can't really answer your question, but I noticed that you have AN7 board. What do you think of it, i was thinking of possibly getting one. Also, does it have the nvidia dolby encoding (Soundstorm or not)?

overall i like the AN7 board. besides the motherboard beeping randomly occasionly and me not being able to figure out why it has proven to be a very good board. the set up of the baord is great, i love the new IDE positions. The board has a great diagnostic program for problems, with a reasonably well written book of codes for it. and the bios is great too. Overall i like it. But having gone through 3 boards in 3 years (MSI, another MSI, ASUS) i have learned to be optimistic :)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
