HI, EVEREEEBODEEEE!

Just wondering what MOBO to get, I have a SOYO P4X400 Dragon and i'm tired trying to figure out how to unlock the bios to allow me to select a 133FSB CPU. So im gonna get a new board. You decide for me please.

IT7 Intel 845 (audio, LAN, RAID, DDR333)
Legacy Free design! $209.00CA

or

6398e 845E MAX2 i845e ATX DDR, 478 pin
(audio/LAN/USB2/RAID) $239.00CA

I read so much about these i cant decide no more. Is there anything better for OCing? I have 2.4a(Costa Rica) and its at its limit with [email protected] on the SOYO garbage board. The thing is i know this CPU will run [email protected].

Which one should i get, any input would be great.

Thanks.
Kam :D

Where did you get that price for an IT7? That comes with all the cables and everything?

I priced mine at $259 at a store, then $224 at ncix.com.
