I recently fried a Shuttle 661 with a P-III 500 - I got an Abit BE6-II off of ebay and put 1 ghz in (oc to 1220)- works great - now have another be6-II coming for the 500.

easy board to work with and piddle with oc

Thanks for the fast response. Do you know what is the difference between 815E and 815EP chipset?

815E has built in graphics 815EP dont, the question is do you want crappy built in graphics (NO!!!!) ?

If all else fails, Go further :)

Well, the best performing chipset for the PIII is the BX. You can get the Socket 370 Asus CUBX from surpluscomputers.com for $35 last I checked.

The BX stability was legendary, but it's not the best choice in this case IMHO. I would look for an 815 chipset board. Also, if you get a 'T' board (e.g. TUSL2 as opposed to CUSL2) you'll have the option to upgrade to a Tualatin processor (something you can't do with any BX board without an adapter).

That (upgrade) which does not destroy you(r system's stability), makes it stronger. Nietzche<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by deadkenny on 08/17/02 06:05 PM.</EM></FONT></P>

Hmm, let's see, best performance, best stability, best compatability, yep the BX is the best choice. It outperforms the i815E/EP, even in graphics performance, even though it only has AGP2x. Done benchmarks, seen others to prove that. The only reason I'm using the lessr i815EP chipset myself right now is that it has the lower memory divider, allowing me to run 174MHz FSB with the memory at 133MHz (can't get PC175 SDRAM). You can see the results at ftp://141.209.46.238/1307b.bmp

You wouldn't happen to have a link to a mainstream site showing benchmarks that prove your point, would you? Just about everything I've read is contrary to your opinion. Perhaps you haven't set up your 815 chipset boards properly or something. Not that I'm putting down the BX, excellent chipset, but older and more dated than the 815, and not a better performer.
