What is the best motherboard for the Amd 2000+ xp???

More about : amd 2000

I think it would depend on the person. Like Do you want Raid/ More slots/ Overclocking?

Go with the Soyo Dragon + , it's an excellent Main Board

Abit kr7 raid is my personal choice.

KR7<font color=red>a</font color=red>-RAID, how many times do I have to tell you? :tongue:

Abit never made a motherboard based on the KT266 chipset.

There is no kr7, only a kr7a, so when I say kr7, I mean kr7a, there is only one kr7 class motherboard.


My statement is correct so you can stop correcting me burger. ;-)

My favorite is the Epox 8KHA+. All the PC reviews gave it very positive results, and it is still the most used in almost any benchmark sites such as THG and Anandtech. It's fast and stable, had no problems with it yet.
I dunno, but I think it is one of the only mobos out there with this debug LED display on the mobo, so you can identify the error if any! Again not sure if all other mobos now use it.

I want a mobo with the best performance, and something that is overclockable.

The KR7a(-RAID) would possibly be the best choice then.
Do you want anything specific integrated? (Sound, network, RAID, etc)
Do you need a certain number of PCI slots or DIMMs?

The Kr7A Raid is a better choice then the Soyo Dragon + ?

I want something that supports 333mhz ddram, ultra 133mhz usb 2, and agp 4x pro.

Why not wait for Abit AT7 or Epox 8K3A2.
They are VIA KT-333 based. with HPT374 4-channel ATA-133. USB 2.0. IEEE 1394 in case of AT7. (not sure about 8K3A2 on IEEE 1394.) 4 DDR slots.

Currently I can think of the Epox 8K3A coming soon with 333MHZ RAM. 333MHZ FSB is attainable only through overclocking as it is not yet licensed by AMD. My 8KHA+ has been tested and actually was taken up to 400MHZ FSB with DDR 400:

Shows a bit how the motherboard OCs.
If you want to overclock, you'd best wait for the Thoroughbred. It will be much more worth the performance jump when you OC higher with it.

<off subject> OMG Matisaro, that site in your profile is GREAT! I have been looking at it for the past 2 nights!! </off subject>

I have an Asus A7V266-e. Doesn't seem very popular, but it has been a damn good mobo for me, and has some nice features like RAID, and 6 channel onboard sound. Performs quite nicely too, and is rock solid as far as stability goes.

I said there is no kr7(non a), so saying kr7-raid is reccomending the brand, not a specific motherboard, so the a is not needed to differentiate because there is no non a mobo.

Ay, wish you weren't so hard on FF8!
Loved that game, my fav RPG actually.
But it's your opinion.
However I agree, old RPGs are the best!
This may get flames, but I love Mystic Quest!

MQ was great for what it was, a childs rpg.


ff8....well.....the site speaks for itself on what we think of that.

Child or not, it was the game that introduced me to RPGs! You now know why I loved it and kept it treasure for me. Still, it had nice music, graphic nostalgia (outside of inside-houses are are black, nothing beyond. It is how RPGs were!), and simple gameplay!

But why FF8 was so annoying to you?
I loved it cuz Squall was me, I was able to relate so well, I just loved the storyline.

Not just me,. there are almost 70 members of my group, but the website pretty much lays out our reasons to think ff8 sucked ass.
