AMD-lovers need not reply :)

i've got a P4 1.6 and my mobo seems to be toast (see http://www.xp-erience.org/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=20436), i'm lookin to get a new one...

wanna stick with ASUS since i like em, but i'm up for anything under $150. want somethin with UDMA-133 if at all possible, but wanna keep my upgrade possibilities open, as well. here's my current specs:

(practically dead) ASUS P4B266
1GB DDR PC2100
3x80GB Ultra-133 HDDs
2x40GB Ultra-133 HDDs
1 CD-RW
1 DVD-Rom
ASUS Geforce3 AGP

been lookin at the ASUS site and Tom's Hardware but my head's spinning :) any suggestions?

Yep those ASUS boards are good, or ABit.

why not get a Promise ATA133 controller card, I have one for my two Maxtor D740X's, no problems with XP at all, damn fast infact.

can't, i wanna keep the RAM that i have instead of buying new RAM, and the P4T533-C only takes RIMMs (i've got DDR DIMMs). looks like a great board, tho

the reviews of the SiS chipset on a few ASUS boards look good...anyone have any real-world experience with em?

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
