I don't know if there really is a right answer to this question, but I'm in the process of overhauling my computer, and have narrowed the boards down to the abit a8n-ultra, the asus a8n-e, and the msi neo4 platinum. They're all fairly similar in price, but in terms of performance and features, which board would you guys recommend? The reason I put this in the abit forum was because I have had good experiences with both asus and msi in the past, and was wondering how abit boards are in terms of stability and reliability. thanks!
I like my AN8 Ultra.
I'm sure that they are all good boards but 1 thing that the AN8 has in it's favour is the silent passive chipset cooler instead of a whiny, failure prone fan.
It also has upto 3.55Vdimm depending upon BIOS.
