    I am building a system for a friend and I can't seem to persuade him that AMD is good, so he is going to go for an intel system.

    Anyone have an opinion on Gigabyte's P4 MBs? Check them out

    Anyone have any other board that are favorites? Don't need RAID or sound. Onboard LAN wouldn't be bad. Need lots of USB ports.

    Thanks! :thumb:

    Well it depends, is he going to be getting RDRAM or DDRRAM?

    And about the AMD thing, just tell him with the money he can save he can get a better graphics card or something... PC in my sig for $1200.
    New Sig soon, old one was way outdated.

    Sorry - totally forgot to include that. DDR will be used

    I have tried to tell him about the cost, but he knows Intel, so he wants Intel. :confused:

    Thanks

    Show him benchmarks...and how AMD look at abit...OWNZ...

    Anyhow AbiT which is what i use has the IT7-MAX2...it comes with 10 USB ports the only legacy it comes with is PS/2 everything else is gone. Onboard NIC and Sound. Along with USB 2.0 it comes with 3 firewire ports (IEEE-1394). Also, comes with a HighPoint RAID controller (onboard obviously) and the new Serial ATA...which is good to have down the road.

    Well here is a look at the board:
