I have a question. What are your reasons for going with the i875 chipset over the i865PE chipset?

Alrighty. But if you're not using features like the ECC RAM, then you'll probably be just as happy with the less expensive Asus P4P800 Deluxe ... if you go that route. Just a thought. :)

Actually, the only recent reviews (at Anandtech) show the Abit IS7 series and Asus P4P800 series are the best performers. Which makes them the best value due to their low price, these are 865PE boards!

All these 865/875 boards were released "immature". BIOS gets better with age. So past reviews and recent reviews are totally out of sync, information on this website is so old as to be irrelavent.
