Just bought a AMD 900mhz processor, DFI VIA133a MB, and memory. Having second thoughts about the MB. I paid $120 for it, is there something a better that costs about the same same or within a $20 range of what I paid? Have til Saturday to return my current board. Thanks for the help.

If you like tinkering with overclocking FSB, PCI Vcore...etc, then Abit is just the killer board. I've bought six 6 so far and haven't had any trouble to speak of.
And, you can up the FSB without adding to the PCI bus.

However I 've heard the Sis chipset is much better than the Via and it's notorious 686 south bridge.

I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.
