MSI K7 Master and K7 Master-S are the best right now. Boards with the VIA KT266 are projected to be out in March. The KT266 chipset is going to beat the AMD761, because of its double pumped comm between the north and south bridges. Im waiting for a ASUS or MSI board with the VIA KT266 myself, but hey its your money and your system.
Someday I will stop asking all the questions!
