THE MSI MS-6167 ATHLON MOTHERBOARD
Last updated: 3/6/2001
BOTTOM LINE. This is an expensive motherboard.
The street price was about $185 when I bought it. With the notable
exceptions of hardware monitoring and more cache', I would say it is worth
every penny of it if your are going to purchase a high-end Athlon CPU. It
has it where it counts: stability and performance.
