A lot of people are recommending this board but i have not seen one review for it. I want the absolute best board i can get, would you guys recommend this. Is it even out yet. I just want the best for performance, speed, and longevity (including overclocking and 4 DDR dimm slots) oh yeah, what's the difference between this and the kt7?

Ok, I'll dive into this first. Restricting this to current chipsets, I'm sure that the KG7R will likely be the most tweakable DDR board yet. But if by 'better' you mean performance that's hard to beat and a much higher quality board than ABIT produces, then I would say check out the Gigabyte GA-7DXR. It has won several 'shootouts' including <A HREF="" target="_new"> this one</A>.

I heard that the special power controller that Abit uses on their Athlon boards is what really makes the differance. Some 6 piece high current system that has been in place since the KT133 or KT133A.

ID10T errors are the cause of most consumer's computer problems.

Nah, the KG7 is way better :) 

Seriously though, the only review is at HardOCP. Wait...there was one more, I'll see if I can dig it up again.
It's the best board around right now, although they've delayed the launch a little. Look for it by the end of the month, lots of places are taking pre-orders. Check <A HREF="" target="_new">PriceWatch</A>. $189, that'll go down a bit after it comes out.

Whoever thinks up a good sig for me gets a prize :wink:

Both the ABIT and Gigabyte boards use a 3-Phase PS (read the referenced review I furnished).
