I am thinking of building the top-ass pc based on the AMD T-bird 266Mhz/FSB

Which is the best MOBO around
1 --> MSI K7T PRO limited edition /with VIA KT 133
2 --> MSI K7T 266 PRO (MS 6380)/ with VIA KT266
3 --> other MOBO (possible with the ALi or AMD chipset)

I could use some help

Regards

I have the MSI k7t pro-r. It's pretty nice, I stuck 512mb of ddr in it. Here's my setup:

Motherboard -
MSI K7T266 PRO-R RAID, Via PRO 266 chipset ultra

CPU -
AMD IN STOCK. Athlon (Tbird) 1.2Ghz, 266 FSB, 256K Cache

Memory - x2
Micron Technology 256MB DDR 266MHz PC2100 DIMM 32x64 Unbuffered, 184-pin
CL(CAS)=2.5

Video -
ATI ATI ALL-IN-WONDER RADEON DDR AGP 32MB

CD/RW -
Plextor IN STOCK, PLEXWRITER 12x10x32 CD-RW(E-IDE

DVD -
Pioneer IN STOCK - DVD-106S - 16x DVD / 40x CD-ROM

Floppy -
Teac 1.44MB Flop.

Hard Drives - x2
IBM EIDE 41.0GB DESKSTAR 60GXP

It's pretty sweet, we're still working on some problems with getting the dvd player to play dvd's smoothly, but other than that all the "kinks" are worked out. That board had a problem where it would just not boot sometimes, but all the lights would be on and stuff, but MSI had a fix already there, so that was the end of that problem.
