quick question...

i'm trying to research a future motherboard purchase, and I'm wondering what the difference was between the two boards in the subject heading. As best I could tell, it looked like the Max3 adds 0+1 Raid... is that it? Is that worth the 50 or so extra for the board?

Best Abit Mobo for the buck is IS7.

Abit IS7 cost only $103 and included SATA RAID, LAN, and Firewire. The SATA RAID and Firewire are worth more than the $13 price increase over the IS7-E.

The IC7-G adds a few more features, but it's up to you whether you'll use them or not. And the IC7-Max3 removes the Serial and Parallel ports, using this space to provide additional cooling for the VRM, something overclockers sometimes appreciate.

I'm just a poor system builder, I can't afford to actually own any of the systems like I build others.
