I am using a very old Asus TX type motherboard with 128 Mb 72 pin Ram and Pentium 233 MMX overclocked to 266 for 3.5 years. I have 90 Gb Hd (Maxtor 60+ Quantum 10 & 20GB). Voodoo3 2000, Sb-Live which I added in these years. Back than Tom's site was just an amateur site, thanx now we have a forum.
To cut the long story short I want an upgrade. But searching for hours, I just couln't decide if I should go for a Abit kt7 or stick with my VERY GOOD OLD Asus brand and take A7V.
1) I don't care about RAID which I won't use. considering and trusting you guys, altough I have been always a fan of Intel against AMD or Cyrix in the old days, I am going for an AMD 1.0 Ghz now. But which Motherboard??
2) I have also no intensions of overclocking since I will be content with the 1 ghz speed after a 233.
3) The only thing I want is a stable system, that won't let me down, annoy me! I have had 0.0 problems with my ASUS.
Could anyone give me a really honest answer??

I have both the a7v and the kt7 raid. The a7v wouldn't work until I got bios 1005a. the kt7 raid worked from day one.
I wouldn't get either board today. There are better boards right now that support a higher bus speed and have ata100 support provided by the via chip, which gives you back an additional irq.
