am considering builing my 4th computer. Price is not an obstacle. In reading Tom's articles, it seems to me there is a perfomace decline in the new Granite chipset with dual ddr vs Rambus 1066. I am interested in other peoples experiece and opinions on this matter to resolve my quandry. Also, are there any other advantages to the Granite chipset that 850E doesnt support. In other words if I choose an 850E mobo, is there any thing I wont be able to do? Thanks to all.

There isn't anything out there today that you wont be able to do with an I850E chipset board with PC 1066 RDR.

The Granite Bay boards do bring AGP 8X to the table but there isn't anything out that will make use of 8X yet.

Here's <A HREF="http://www.giga-byte.com/MotherBoard/Products/Products_..." target="_new">Gigabyte's</A> motherboard page. You can compare the Granite Bay and GA-8INXP features there.
