Building a New Computer
Craig34 Jul-10-00 07:27 PM
I am building a new computer for myself. I would like to base the system around a Pentium III 800 Mhz. Since I cannot afford RDRAM, I am hoping to use PC-133 SDRAM. I am looking for a motherboard that can support PC-133 SDRAM and that has 5 PCI slots, and maybe one ISA. I need a 4X AGP also. I was going to use the Abit BE6-II, but I am unsure now. Does this motherboard support the PC-133 SDRAM? Thanks for all help.

The BE6-II user manual, which you can download form http://www.abit-usa.com/ has settings for 133 Mhz FSB, but also says. “Above 66MHz/100MHz bus speeds are supported but not guaranteed due to the PCI and
chipset specifications.” I would not buy a Slot 1 motherboard or CPU. They are obsolete (see http://duxcw.com/digest/guides/cpu/obit.htm). Larry
