    I've just finished building my second Pc so I can only compare my current GA 7VRXP to an Abit KT7-RAID.

    And I liked the abit better.

    The manual was a lot better. In my opinion the Gigabyte manual is really :cry: . The pages about BIOS are very annoying.

    S.M.A.R.T. for Harddisks:
    Disable -Disable Smart for Harddisk
    Enable -Enable Smart for Harddsisk

    All the BIOS functions are listed in this way. But it does not explain a single option/feature. So basically it just tells you what Enable and Disable means (50 times), and does a very poor job at this too.

    So I relied heavily on this forum, to get it running properly. Now it's fine, and I am beginning to like it. Although I liked my abit better. The abit practically installed itself, and I never had a single problem.

    I am still running win 98SE and I believe installing the Gigabyte would have been easier with an newer OS.

    So in the end Gigabyte, turns out to be

    :D I'm an Abit fan all the way.. My wife and daughter have an Abit KT7A board versions 1.1 and 1.3 My spare is an Abit KT7A, my main computer.. which is the one that I'm typing this on, is an Abit KR7A-133 with 40GB ATA 133 Maxtor HD. :D

    I've fiddled around with Gigabyte, MSI, EPoX, others, but I sure like the BIOS in this Abit Motherboards. Easy to tweak, easy to set up, and easy to get MB BIOS revisions and flash.

    my 2 cents worth.

    I like Asus, Tyan, and SuperMicro, but I try out different companies when I upgrade. I'm giving Iwill the go with this LAN box I putting together...tried Epox, but the blasted board croaked within 2 weeks of purchase:(:thumbs do I may try them again, but companies with boards that die kinda leave me with a bad taste in my mouth...that and boards that don't work right with certain hardware (looking at ECS )
