I currently have a MSI K7 Turbo 2 with 512mb sdram.

I am looking at this (http://www.msicomputer.com/product/detail_spec/product_detail.asp?model=K7N2_Delta-L) motherboard.

Any opinions?

I'll put my existing XP 2200 in it for now and pick up 2 sticks of 256mb DDR

Honestly the MSI's aren't good ocing boards, but for just straight up performance I'll say it isn't bad. I think you'll do better with the Epox 8RDA+ @ newegg. 85 bux with free shipping. Can't go wrong with a deal like that!

Thanks for your input!

Will the 333mhz fsb on the Epox make much of a difference compared to the 400mhz fsb on the MSI?

I have their (MSI's) nForce1 board, and have built a couple more nForce rigs using them. All worked great, no DOA's, no hiccups building, and my XP rig overclocks pretty well. Their BIOS update utility works great too!

I usually swear by Asus only lately, but decided to give MSI a shot a while ago, and not a problem.
