Unfortunately, my Asus A7V133 died (maybe my fault?) and this Jetway 867AS is pissing me off a little. I want to get another Asus but I cant decide which one.

A7V266E (via chipset): Im assuming it will be the one with the most stability.

A7N266E (NVIDIA chipset): Not familiar with this chipset at all.

A7M266D (AMD chipset): Is this chipset any good?

Please help me out. I want the stability I had with the A7V133, but I love DDR. Help me get away from the Jetway POS!

Nvidia, then via, then AMD.

Are the Nvidia chipsets as stable or more stable than the VIA chipsets?

Man I gotta get away from this Jetway!

the n-force board has onboard GF2 graphics,dolby 5.1 and LAN
VIA makes a good chipset and i havent tried a mobo with the AMD chipset so i couldnt tell ya how stable it is

i personally would try the n-force board
