I just built my new rig with a Gigbyte GA-7VTX-H,XP 1700+, 512MB PC 2100, and spare AGP video. I like it except that the on-board sound is kind of disappointing. I had the Creative SB 128 PCI on another system and this on-board version is not up to par imo. I'm waiting on a SB Live 5.1. The on-board LAN was great however. I was able to tweak my settings to get 1500k down and 500k up from my cable connection, which was far faster than my previous D link 10/100 pci card on my old Athlon system. Gigabyte products have never given me any problems. This mobo also has dual BIOS.
