    I've got an AOpen sitting in the machine I'm typing this on. Working great. An older BX Slot 1 is sitting in another machine that for this kid living with us right now. We've had that board for a few years now. Running great too. Okay, ALi chipsets tend to suck, IMO, as well as the branded Acer stuff. However, the AOpen boards have been good to me. Not the super tweaking stuff, but still reliable boards, unlike some other companies I know *cough*

    If you don't care about USB 2.0, CPU Overheat Protection (COP), ATA133, etc. ...any of the MBs you mentioned would do nicely.

    If however you want USB 2.0 and the rest....take a look at the
    Asus A7V333 or the MSI KT3 Ultra ARU.. The GigaByte GA-7VRXP looks great too but it does not reflect COP support.

    Good luck on your choice.

    I have never seen one item with the acer logo that was at all reliable, or even somewhat reliable.

    trash > Acer

    If you have ever had the PLEASURE of using an Acer RA20-P modem then you would be singing Acer's praises - they were a great product :p

    Another board to consider if you are on a budget is the ECS K7S5A. It does not overclock to well but it is a solid board with The SIS 735 chipset. Not as fast as the kt266a but like I said its a budget board.
