    Soyo has a very nice KT400 board which you might like to look for.

    The soyo KT400 board is also more than $140 USD. What are you going to do with your new computer. Do you need raid, do you want to overclock? Personally, I tried the Abit at7 max2 (ver similiar to the KD7) and I had a lot of trouble with it...I was less than impressed. I am currently usingthe Soyo KT333 PE, and it is great...($150 at newegg). Epox is also a great board for overclocking...I have not tried one, but have read great things about them...also they are really cheap for the features they have on them. You can get a good EPOX KT333 board with raid for a little over 100USD, which is nice! Hope this helps. Let us know what you decide!

    I've used quite a few 8K3A/+'s in systems that I've built and never had any troubles with them. :thumb:

    Picked up my first 8K5A3+ yesterday so in a day or two I'll let ya know how I find it but it does come with USB 2.0. ;)

    Damn the luck. I've been looking all over the place for one of those baords and they aren't to be found anywhere in the States. Maybe because of those idiotic dock workers going on strike for about a month? :shoot2:

    Sorry for the misunderstanding, I misread the model number. I'm looking for the 8K9A3+ mainboard. Uses the KT400 chipset. Can't find them ANYWHERE in the States.

    ahhh, well in that case....I do not know of where to get one. I did not realize that the Epox KT400 solutions had even entered the retail market. I know that they have been released on paper....hmmm? :confused:
    I am curious to see a review of the board!
