    Actually, the MSI K7TPro2 is more stable, and probably cheaper. But it doesn't have RAID support if you're into it.

    I dont know Tiger, I have hear many people who lost 150mhz on an OC when switching to the MSI board. I sure enjoy my KT7 RAID.

    I prefer intel myself but have dabbled with amd with machines I have had to fix and the kt7 has been the most reliable as well as flexible. This has just been my experience as I have only really worked with about 8-10 different amd boards. But, I have seen some SWEET machines on kt7 and I am not even a fan.

    G'Luck!

    It's NOT 'Athalon'! It's Athlon

    haha, NEWBIE

    And get a KT-7 Raid, but it's socket A for Thunderbirds

    If you are refering to a regular Athlon SlotA then that's old and outdated now

    On the contrary. I just built my new sys with a 650K7 and it more then trippled my performance in every benchmark that i used on my old 500 Celeron. It's really not that bad of a machine. And some ppl said thet the ATI Rage Fury Pro was outdated. With alittle tweaks I score more then 4000 3D Mark Points. It's just how u run the stuff I guess. Or maybe I'm just lucky
