    New Motherboard??

    I was planning to buy one of the new Nvidia chipset motherboards but it looks like they won't be out for a while.

    What is the best (Athlon XP supported) DDR 266 Socket A Motherboard around at the moment??? The Price needs to be under or around $200. I am particularly intertested in extremely good AGP support i.e. AGP Pro and the best chipset for graphical perfromance????? Easy Overclocking features are also a must???

    Should I wait for the Nvidia Nforce chipset???

    ThankYou

    KT266A based motherboard.....right now!

    As for Nvidia's chipset, I am little curious if it is ever going to be released.

    I personally want to get the ASUS A7V266-E, as soon as its released!

    Asus is overpriced....

    I've heard some problems with Epox 8kha+. But again, the board is pretty new...so.... 8k7a is great though...

    Abit KR7A -- such a nice, clean layout (except for the floppy connector, hope they reconsider the location) --
