Motherboard enquiry Tags: Motherboards Computer Build Last response: June 19, 2003 1:09 PM in Motherboards Share Trev June 18, 2003 11:21:42 AM I want to build a new computer, I'm unsure which Motherboard I will use. It will be a P4 machine, anyone got any thoughts on the GIGABYTE 8SG800 Sis 648?

Check out the ABit IS7-G or Asus P4P800 Deluxe... they're both top of the line performance for a good price. Shadus | Report abuse Prof133 June 18, 2003 12:20:25 PM Indeed. Go springdale (Intel 865pe) on this build: more performance, better upgrade path, reasonable price. Abit IS7 and Asus P4P800 are two great boards. <b><font color=blue>Logic over all.</font color=blue></b> | Report abuse Crashman Motherboard Expert June 19, 2003 5:05:26 AM The 8SG800 was a GREAT board in it's day, but ever since Intel released the 875, those days were numbered! Your best solution in that price range now is the Abit IS7, with the Intel 865PE chipset. <font color=blue>Watts mean squat if you don't have quality!</font color=blue> | Report abuse Trev June 19, 2003 1:09:23 PM Thanks for all the info, looks like I will have to have a closer look at the IS7.
