    Question Abit, Epox and DFI, which to buy?

    ABIT NF7
    EPOX 8RDA3 PLUS
    DFI NFII ULTRA INFINITY

    My NF7 (sig) are half dead, with voltage regulators and temp sensors defective.
    I'm on the budget, medium to high o/c and game minded, so, which one to buy?

    Who stole my white stars?
    Get the nf7 if it is the s version. Otherwise get the dfi board.

    I switched to DFI after using a 8RDA+. The DFI is outstandingly better in performance then EPOX. EPOX has really gone into the crappers over the last 4 years. I got an NF7-S from Newegg but it was a dud on arrival, so I chose the DFI after that mishap. I haven't looked back.

    Sig updated. Now I'm just playing with latest Tictac bios.
    With my old'n dead Nf7, I never passed 200 fsb. Now, just for start, I'm at 210 mhz, 2 days straight, rock solid.
    Note my cheapo Infineon ram. I can smell those sticks burning at 220+

    Try the DFI, you can always Ebay your Abit.
    I've tried Abit, Epox and DFI in fair numbers - but the DFI owns them all ... and has the best sound.

    I can't eBay my Abit cause I'm not in Usa or Uk.
    I know Dfi has an better fsb overclock, but I cant afford better memory, so it would not be any diference.
    And about the Dfi sound being better, I think they both uses nVidia SoundStorm, so it should not havy that diference.
