Three Socket A, ATX-form boards:

All are:

KT333 Ultra-TA133 4XAGP 5 PCI 3 DDR "Audio"



Gigabyte 7VRX.........as low as $82
Epox EP-8K3A..........as low as $88
MIS Ultra 6380E.......as low as $89
Soltek SL-75DRV5......as low as $98 (notes 2xIDE)
Asus A7V333...........as low as $116 (notes USB 2.0)

Any votes of confidence, complaints? Did I miss any important differences in the boards?

did you already check the posts in here? there have already been some discussions and complaints about the asus board.

personally i tend to the gigabyte because its the cheapest and offers all features. here are the flagship-board specs:

ASUS A7V333, KT333, Audio (CMI-8738), USB 2.0, UDMA 133 RAID (PC2700 DDR)

Gigabyte GA-7VRXP, KT333, Audio (CT5880), USB2.0, LAN, RAID UDMA 133 (PC2700 DDR)

EPoX EP-8K3A+, KT333, RAID UDMA 133, onboard P80P (PC2700 DDR)

MSI MS-6380E, KT3 Ultra-ARU, KT333, RAID, USB2.0 (PC2700 DDR)

Okay - you have some slightly different part numbers than what I came up with. What if I don't want/need RAID? How much am I paying for that on a typical board?

When a board description says "LAN", does that mean there's a 10/100 ethernet port mounted right into it?

For the EPOX board, what is "onboard P80P"?

Thanks again!

sorry, those were the best equipped boards. here are yours:

Gigabyte GA-7VRX, KT333, UDMA 133, USB 2.0 (PC2700 DDR)

EPoX EP-8K3A, KT333, onboard P80P (PC2700 DDR)

MSI MS-6380E, KT3 Ultra, KT333 (PC2700 DDR)

ASUS A7V333, KT333, Audio (CMI-8738), USB 2.0 (PC2700 DDR)

i cant find anything for soltek. i am from austria, so some mobo's might not be available. the P80P on epox seems to be a diagnostic chip/card.

ad LAN: yes, you're right. it means that an ethernet controller is onboard; usually realtek
