All my computers are Abit (KT7, KA7-100, and a socket 7 board I can't remember the name of) until ECS released the K7S5A, which I just couldn't pass up bang/buck wise. Got it a week after release for only 60 bucks.
My least stable "quality" brand boards have all had Abit written on them. Having said that, I'm trying to buy an Abit board right now. They haven't been bad, just not as stable as say, my Intel boards.
Asus seems to be the most popular but don't they overclock the fsb on their boards before leaving the factory? I haven't read anything positive or negative about intel boards. I'm considering the d850emv2l...anyone have opinions on it?
You have trouble with stability with Abit boards? Generally, I have found them hard to get dialed in especially with regard to AGP settings. Once dialed in Abit boards have been really stable and their overclocking ability is legendary.
I can't think of a good signature so I'll use this one.
Also, there is at least one item under the Hardnews section, but that's updated daily with about 5 links each day, and I'm not going to bother manually searching for an item that is at least 1 week old to show there have been complaints about gigabytes compatibility problems.
lol! that has to do with dual bios .. considering if you mess up an abit board with out dual bios you have no recovery option .. so your arguement is misleading once again .... i read that and you know what? Here is the conclusion!!!
"Conclusion: Less Burden and Costs for Support
In our last comparison, the fact that dual BIOS gives users more room to flash and modify BIOS was downplayed. When an error occurs while flashing, dual BIOS gives users the chance to restore the original BIOS without a lot of hassle. For standard mainboards without dual BIOS, if an error occurs during a flash procedure, then the only option is to send it back to the manufacturer. "
lol what crap dude! This is your rhetoric and false accusations and stuff that you made up. there is no compatibility problems? what are you talking about?
