    I'm looking for a new KT400 chipset / AGP8x mainboard. I know I'm impatient, but I have a buyer for my current system, if I can part with it soon. However, I would like to buy a mobo with AGP8x, so that I won't have to buy another one in 6 months when I upgrade to an ATI 9700 or NV30. I'm trying to plan ahead... I've read about the MSI KT4 Ultra and IWILL KK400 mobos. Does anyone know of other mobos in this catagory ? Onboard audio would not be used, extra features are welcome, but mainly I'm looking for something stable !
    Any help would be appreciated, Thanks...

    GigaByte GA7-VAXP,
    MSI KT4 Ultra,
    Iwill KK400,

    OK, in your opinions, which of these would be better ? for speed, features, stablity ? (looking at the different companies track records)

    Does anyone know of any other Via KT400 chipset mainboards that are coming out soon ?

    thx,

    I'd say that I'd trust in my personal order would be,
    1/ MSI
    2/ Gigabyte
    3/ Iwill

    The only thing is what are ya goin' to do with all that wasted memory bandwidth if ya can't use it? :?:

    Have you considered nForce 2 boards instead of KT400?

    They also got AGP 8x and DDR400 support, most likely S-ATA and also dual NICs.

    There are 2 main flavours, with on-board video (GF 4 MX) and with-out.

    Which is better, KT400 or nForce 2, well I don't know and I don't think anyone does, since they're not out yet.

    nForce 2 boards are due in mid-September, which is still over a month away :(
