    Waht is a good motherboard for a new DDR Athlon system?

    By lawrencium July 02, 2001, 11:57 PM

    FIC AD11 its one of the most stable motherboards, plus its only $114shipping included at www.newegg.com, don't let people talk you out of the board, i have it and its great!

    All I know is FIC is an OEM. Second I had one and it was junk, I already explained what happened many times so i'm not going to post that again..

    But in my experince and many others the Epox 8K7A is the best DDR mobo out there, also the BEST overclocking mobo ever created IMO.

    By minus200 July 03, 2001, 04:58 PM

    MSI listed above is fine
    the Epox 8K7A deserves a close look for $120 at newegg.com it is a good bit better Mb than FIC although FIC's new MB may be the best they have built

    I'm planning on geting an ASUS A7M266 mobo, are there nay better mobo's that I should concider for a 1.4ghz T-bird settup?

    By kritical July 03, 2001, 09:05 PM

    i got the asus a7a mobo. Its real nice and I like it a lot but if your a real performance freak, get the a7m because it had the athlon chipset which can get more out of your ddr memory. As long as you combine it with a fast processor and namebrand ram, you will be fine. Be sure to get something like corsair or crucial ddr ram and if your not tight on money, get the new pc2400 cas2 sticks.

    By drdoom July 03, 2001, 10:42 PM

    Where can you get PC2400 DDR memory. Crucial only has PC2100 listed.

    Well did you miss my post? You asked fr the best and I told you. The Asus is supposed to be good, but the Epox beats it in every catagory.

    Well guys, I have used two sticks of Crucial's pc2100 cas2.5 and both do 166/333mhz cas2.

    I believe all Crucial's stick can do that, so I don't see a reason to buy the more expensive ones..

    I have a cheap ass 256 cas3 stick which is supposedly imported from crucial directely to canada. BS

    Hell yea! That's what I mean! Why the hell do ppl spend the extra dough on pretty much nothing. I just wish ppl would read this before they buy.

    Another vote for the 8K7A here. I'm just holding off buying for a couple more days in the hope I can get the RAID version from the vendor I found who does good uk prices.

    Doesn't the 8k7a have onboard audio? No problems disabling it and using my SB Live?

    That would be correct.

    By kpxgq July 05, 2001, 01:22 AM

    i also vote for the epox 8k7a....
    my friend got the asus a7m for nearly $100 more... it wouldnt boot up so he is on his second asus board... personally the epox is basically the same as the a7m "voted best gaming mobo" at alot cheaper price. asus a7a266 is big waste of money... it uses the via kt133 chipset which doesnt effectively utulize DDR.
