hi everyone,

I am in need of a motherboard and I've narrowed the selection down to two: the Abit KT7A-RAID and the Gigabyte 7ZXR(2.2). I am planning to use a Duron 800 MHz processor with the motherboard. Can anyone provide some suggestions?? I've read a number of reviews and each had its pros and cons. Any other suggested mobo would be appreciated... thanks...

ECS k7s5a, providdes DDR and SDRAM support ( can't use both at the same time, but will allow you to use your old memory for awhile ) has a single SIS735chiset ( so north/south bridge are combined for improved bus speeds) and is one heck of a lot cheaper than the other two boards. http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
