Question Which one to get....

How are you all doin? Well, I am making the upgrade to a AMD DDR system from a Intel P3 800eb on a CUV4Xe. Not your ideal overclocking setup.

Anyways, I have my eyes on the Abit KG7 Raid and the Giga-byte 7DXR for the motherboard. Any suggestions? I am really torn on this one. One has that sweet dual bios setup, the other has the sweet SoftMenu III. Both perform equally.

RAM is most definately going to be 256 MB of Crucial PC2100 2.5CAS DDR goodness....

For the CPU, I am torn between the Athlon 1.4 or the 1.33. I believe, but am not positive, that they both have the AYHJA core. The 1.33 comes with a great GlobalWin HSF, while the 1.4 comes with a mediocre CoolerMaster HSF.

My idea is to build an ideal overclocking, all-around good performer. Price isn't a major concern. In other words, if it is worth the extra doe, I will buy it instead.

Lemme know what you think, ladies and gentlemen
