ASUS A7V vs. Abit KT7-RAID
IbZa Oct-02-00 09:25 PM
After reading various reviews on A7V and KT7-Raid, and looking at the benchmarks, I've decided to go with Abit. Both motherboards are awesome, however you can overcloak more esily with KT7. KT7 does not have a sound on the mobo, which is a plus, and has extra PCI slot (which anyway will be used for a sound card). Now the question for hardcore gamers; which graphic card?!?!? GeForce 2 MX or GeForce 2 GTS?? Oh yeah please can somebody recommend the RAM, is ECC required or not? If somebody has a different opinion on A7V or KT7-RAID please post!!!!!!

P.S. I am getting T-bird 800Mhz (unlocked, if i can find it)

As for me, I am going skip this generation of boards and wait for the next round of Socket A motherboards and DDR memory, which should début around COMDEX in mid-November. It will probably have the AMD 760 chipset. I'll keep my lowly V770 for another year or so. Larry

So you are saying that this generations boards suck??? Why are you skipping them???

can you explain this "...which should début around COMDEX in mid-November..." what does it mean. COMDEX????
VIA chipset will be outperformed by AMD 760 chipset??

Will the performance boost signifacantly???
Can you explain in details please

I didn't say that and I didn't particularly like your poor choice of rather worn-out and crude word. Just use any search engine to find out about COMDEX. It is a major computer exhibition that has been going on for many years. This year it is in Las Vegas. I am skipping this generation because of double-data rate memory which should significantly increase performance. There are other reasons; see http://duxcw.com/digest/misc/xmas.htm. Larry
