I can purchase this board from a friend if he still has available for what I feel is a good deal.

Its KT266A chipset with the newest bios and he will throw in a free HP ScanJet 5s Scanner.

I was planning to buy a raid controller card as I do want to run raid 0. This may be an alternative and allow me to keep my 8K3A board for my wifes new system and sell the DFI AK76-SN (761 chipset based board) that I planned to use for wifes system.

I can buy this board for the equal of $70 US

Feedback please??

or after reading a review of this board am I better off to just buy a newer board that offers raid such as nforce 2 or maybe the updated version of my board in raid version as long as price is not a big difference.

I have the KR7A-R board and I have to say it is just a great mobo. I have had zero problems with it except for the temp. probes do not work right. I think that is just my board though. The mobo is rock solid with a XP2000+ and has never ever crashed in the 6 months that I have had it. I also unlocked and overclocked my CPU today with no problems.

A great mobo

i do not have that board, nor am i buying it, but if it's the kt266a version, it's only about the highest fsb i've seen on most boards. i believe it is possible to get over 185fsb or more with the 4th divider, which is more than i can say for most boards. i tested a kd7-raid, and with some voltage, i got my xp1600 to 175fsb @ 4th divider. i have the at7-max, and it can't do 161 without the 5th, and my at7-max2 ...which is a kt400 board will be tested this week. i have a small psu til my new one gets here.

either way, from what i've read, the kt266a chipset is only limited by your other components. it is a bear of a chipset
