I am looking to buy a new motherboard, and I am not stuck between 3 motherboards. So I am putting this out there to get some opinions of people who own these boards and have run benchmarks like 3dMark2001, and Sisoft Sandra 2001. I have a geforce 4 ti 4400, athlon xp2000+ pc2100 ddr.

The boards I am looking at are the following:
Gigabyte GA-7VRXP
EPOX 8K3A+
and
MSI KT3 Ultra ARU.

Let me know how these boards perform for you.

The EPoX 8K3A+ even though cheaper will get the most out of your system/cpu the real thing is whether you need USB2.0 or onboard nic. :smokin:

I am not sure what the advantage of usb 2.0 would bring, aside from future compatability. I guess speed and reliability is what I am after. I have a nic already, a bonus there would be not having to use up a pci slot. Speed is what I am really looking to achieve with this next motherboard.

Well IMO the EPoX is the pick of them. ;)
