Why would you want the KT chipset? Nforce2 has much better video and sound than anything by Via.

Go <A HREF="http://www.amdboard.com/products.html" target="_new">here</A> and look up the boards under the heading "nVidia nForce2-GT
(IGP + MCP-T)". Then read the reviews.

I'm looking for a micro-atx board and have decided on AOpen MK79G-1394, but if you're not limiting yourself to micro-atx then there is likely a better choice.

The only nforce2 boards I've heard bad things about are the Asus ones.

i have a n asus nforce2 and it is storming. its fast stable and good for oc! not all nforce2 boards come with the soundstorm onboard audio some have a cheaper option which isnt as good so make sure you get one with the soundstorm. other than that most nforce2 boards are pretty equal just look for the one with all the features you want

Is the Micro-ATX a smaller board?

Hi Bruce,
Micro-ATX is a "half size" board intended to fit into smaller cases (generally with only 2 5" drive bays) the same size as the older AT minitower cases. They generally have only 3 PCI slots instead of 5 some have AGP slots, some don't.

Here's an example of a micro ATX board...

And here's an example of the case you would use:

Makes for a nice compact system that still uses regular parts...

Thanks for the info. I like lage cases because they are easy to get around in, but I guess a mini tower would help if you didn't have the room. Thanks again Bruce

Back in the mid-90s there was a huge push toward office furniture and home computer stands that had a pocket built in for the computer. Of course the dimensions were modelled after the mini-tower as it was pretty much an industry standard at the time. Now, suddenly, everyone's upgrading to ATX and the new cases wouldn't fit into the furniture... so, micro-atx to solve the problem.

I still have a lot of customers using that older furniture so I build quite a few uATX machines...

hmmmm....maybe I should look into selling office funiture...
