Whatever works, I say.

Even amptron may not be the best....it's loads better than store-bought.

Ya got some nice specs. I deal with Amptron on a daily basis and I personally wouldn't buy from them. But I have to admit thos specs aren't that bad at all.

Keep us (me) posted as to how long it lasts.

I mean, that Amptron motherboards, are not as regarded as highly as Abit, ASUS, Gigabyte, etc, etc, etc. But your still getting a good performance and value out of it.

By store bought, I meant like a pre=made store bought computer, like HP, Dell....I shouda specified that, I see why u r confused now, lol.

and the Amptron mobo + 1.4 AMD processor, is better than teh the store bought computers.

ANd by whatever works, I meant that since your friend or whoever your talking about, didn't go with the high profile brand, Amptron is regarded as cheaper, right? well, whatever works for him, you know? It's a compliment......I guess I was pretty vague in my post, lol, sorry about that.:)

actually the one who bought that amptron board was my boss, lol

we will build comps on those...

he never really liked AMD so he told me to "do the research" on
teh mobos and stuff

I came up with Abit KG7 which apparently was more than he thought he should pay for a board...
so he came up with his own Amptron
we benched them and that board cam close to MY KG7 in all benches..
forgot to mention the whole reason behind this thread was;
I had asked about Amptron mobos a while back..
Easto should remember..
