I'm going to be upgrading my computer in 2 or 4 weeks (I'm getting tired of the bugs in my MSI K7T 266 Pro2RU)
So, I'm looking at getting an A7N8X board.
Problem is, one of my coworkers told me that he had just gotten one and tried to get it to work, and it took him several hours of fiddling and he still couldn't get it to work right. He wasn't getting good memory bandwidth etc.
So, should I still give this one a shot? Or should I go for an A7V8X, or something else?
I am running a 266FSB athlon, and am going to wait for the 400FSB athlons before doing my next big processor upgrade.
Any advise here (please back it up with details, I want sucess stories and horror stories please)
Thanks, but I don't overclock. I'm looking for reliability and stability rather than overclockability. And, as far as I know, ASUS tends to be the brand to get that from (actually, Asus and Tyan, but Tyan doesn't make nForce boards)
