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.
