OK....

I order the Abit I7 Max motherboard to go with my P4 processer.

Then I read about.......

and

Should I be feeling rather dumb?
It looks as though my 3200 cl2 would have been a fine fit.....

shant,
david

To answer your question...

I would ONLY buy a mobo with an intel chipset if I was buying Pent cpu.

(that's what I run and how i feel.)

Thank you for the compliment on the pic (yes, my wife taken with a canon G1).

I was intrigued by the apparent increase in bandwidth with the new chips.
