    Does anyone know what the new EPOX (KT400/AGP8x) mainboard is called ? ie: model number

    EPOX boards are a bit more $$$ here, compared to MSI boards, but they are available.

    How would you guys rate EPOX boards vs. MSI or GigaByte boards of the same chipset ? ie: compare KT333 chipset boards of the 3 companies.

    Bottom line... Are EPOX boards better/more stable/more features than MSI boards of the same chipset ?

    thx.

    Epox is a company that makes way for overclockers. MSI is generally solid overall in price, performance, and features.
    Stability at stock speeds shouldn't be an issue. I got burned by Epox when I tried them, but that was just one board. I'm sure they're fine usually and that I got a bum deal.

    AFAIK, Epox hasn't announced their KT400 solution yet. Unless you're an overclocker, I don't see the KT400 being much of an improvement over the KT333 which wasn't much of a boon over the KT266A---unless you're into overclocking.

    If the MSI boards are cheaper, and you just want a system that goes rather than is geared at overclocking, that would be your best bet.

    Have a look at www.ocworkbench.com

    The latest news story there recons KT400 is basically KT333 + 8x AGP, i.e. it offers the same performance and apparently on top of that they got issues with some DDR modules.

    Even with 166 Mhz FSB Athlons I don't think DDR400 will offer much improvement over KT333 (just like KT333 didn't offer that much over KT266a).

    But I still plan to get a KT333 rather than KT266a board because of the new features such as XP termal protection and USB 2.0

    That be either Epox 8K5A2 or MSI KT3 Ultra 2.

    BTW, when are the new Epox boards due in the shops in Oz?

    i'm trying to "plan ahead", we'll see if it works out that way.
    If you are really trying to plan ahead, then you best wait a few months... ATA as we know it, is dead.

    Ya, I want my new mainboard to have AGP8x and Serial ATA ! The DDR400 is just "fluff", speaking of ram, how can I find out if a mainboard has problems with different DIMMs (before it's too late)? I'm looking at a 512Mb DIMM of DDR400 or DDR333 to start, with another 512Mb to be added later...
