Ok guys, I have one of those copper T-birds thats o'clocked to 933 coming and I want a new board to put it in. I've read the reviews but I want to know if anyone here has any of the new boards and what you think, after all we play with them all the time. This maybe my last upgrade for awhile, I can see my wife's eyes roll as I type that, but after all ti will b gol season soon....lol

Thanks

You need to decide if you want a RAID M/B or not. This will narrow your your list. Is the board full RAID capable? Their is a differents between Asus & Abit RAID boards. MSI is shipping their new Turbo M/B soon. They usually build a solid, stable M/B & has the idiot LED light to let you know where the boot failed.

I have a new Asus coming this week & pray it is as stable as my MSI Iron Gate M/B. If it is not, I will be mad at myself for not waiting on the new MSI Board. I only upgraded for the K133A chipset not RAID.

OK guess I should have stated that..:)....well as I found out and this is my opinion, I think the onboard Raid blows, I bought a Promise ATA 100 Raid controler and love it compared to the onboard on my BX 133. So Raid is not really a necesity right now.
