  1. AT7 and KX7-333 are basically the same (VIA KT333 chipset) except that AT7 doesn't have P/S2 ports for keyboard and mouse anymore, plus it has built-in sound card and LAN as well as USB-2 and Firewire 1394.

    It sure has with version KX7-333-RAID. I just bought it and love it. I have been overclocking my XP1600+ at FSB 176MHz and 9.5Multiplier (1673MHz).

  2. I perfer kx7-333. When I build my computer I would like to choose the parts myself. I do not like onboard stuff.
  3. yes, it is a kind illusion.
  4. so with a xp2100+ we can expect an overclocking about 2Ghz with a good cpu series. i think this is above the possibilities offered by the new thoroughbred.
  5. Motherboards.org has reviews of both boards.
  6. About the XP1600+, is it a Thoroughbred or Palomino? Which one is better? I'm thinking bout getting an Abit KX7-333R, how much did you pay for your Abit?

    Mine is Palomino core. I don't know which one would be better since I haven't used TBred (and I don't want to speak of it until I get a hand on it). I bought my KX7-333R from Newegg for $109.

  8. I chose the KX7-333r (and got it at newegg.com for $109:) I think it is better since it allows you to pick and choose your expansion cards (and you can also use them in a new board when you upgrade). I was just wondering about Tbred compatibility. With a bios update, is there any reason that it shouldn't work?

  9. no if the latest bios version is compatible with TBred.
  10. Cool thanks guy.
