Looking to grab an Epox MOBO. Newegg has the 8K3A KT333CE DDR333 266MHz refurbed for 72 bux or the EP-8K3AE for 69 bux. Which one? I have 2 sticks of XMS3200 RAM. It seems they both are pretty comparable. The 3 bucks nay be worth it for the retail stuff. Is there anything to look out for on these boards?

the 8K3A will overclock better however I think there was a faulty run of them at some point because I've read a lot of threads where people have had to RMA the board because it was DOA or in my case, died in a week.

Of the 2, I would go with the 8k3a based on O/Cing capabilities. On the down side, I had to RMA 2 of them but if you find a good one it'll be a great board. Hopefully as a refurb it has been tested and your chances might be better. Plus Newegg is a good reseller so that'll help should there be a problem. :cool:
