Hi!

Enough of that celly crap... I want a AMD and am currently looking for the best board out there... there are so many... EPoX, MSI, Asus, Abit, etc... I cant decide which one is the best for overclocking....
from what I can see in other threads the ASUS A7v (133 or not?) seems to be good, but I dunno if it is the best one to go for...

any suggestion appreciated :)

[H]ard OCP recently compared the asus A7V-133 and the soyo K7VTA-PRO - and concluded that they couldn't recommend either. They love the KT7a-RAID, and that view seems to be echoed among the hardware sites, along with the Iwill KK266. I'd go with either the Iwill or the Abit, probably the Iwill - they seem to be consistently getting good reviews, and the Iwill more often than not has the edge on the Abit in performance.

u read 1 article and u decide u dont like the a7v133 bra. ur doing all this reading, but NO TESTING except the board u got. should i add that abit has multiplier issues on the lower end, oh and the iwill is a good board, but its had its own share of teething probs. the soyo an soltek do suck.
