I have a bundle of kit enough to make a new pc but i have 2 motherboards; Asus av7 133 and an Elite K7s5a. Just out of interest which Board would you consider better, and its going to be a family machine, so its gotta do everything lol.
The A7V-133 has always been garbage. The ECS K7S5A is usually a pretty good board. It would be a superior board except that ECS had a quality control problem that lead to a higher than normal failure rate. If yours has lived a while, chances are it's not one of the defective units.
So definately try the K7S5A first.
