    Well like I said it is what my girlfriend is using now. She loves it and when she wants a new machine I will take that one back and use it as a MP3 server or something. I had so much fun with that board

    My first o/c was sadly only about a year ago...it was on the same Duron 800 I am using now. Because of my ****ty ram I could only get it to 915mhz, and when I got my new Gainward GeForce3 Ti200/450 last month I had such trouble with VIA's idiocy combined with XP that it's back at 800....sigh....I need a new motherboard...I will never buy VIA again.

    I don't think you should be so quick to judge all Via chipsets from your experience with the AOpen AK33 - a KT133 board

    I'm not familiar with that specific board...but there are a few real KT133 dogs out there, and AOpen doesn't exactly have the best of reputations either.

    Besides if you want to run an XP - what are your alternatives:
    SiS - good but not really OC'er friendly
    AMD - not widely available anymore
    vNidia - get ready to fork out the cash & Oc by jumpers too.
    ALi- C'mon - you weren't really considering Ali, were you?

    most KT133a or KT266a board owners I know are more than satisfied with Via chipsets.

    I have that chipset on my board and I love it, the overclocking was great, the board was rock solid. Great chipset if ya ask me

    Well my 1st was getting an AMD 586 133MHz to 160MHZ and that was without a fan. Next was a K6-2 500 to 560 but that was one hot SOB and my current setup which you can see in my sig.
    I have put together a few oc'd PC's for friends though of which, my 1st for some one else, was a T'bird 700 which does 1100MHz (10x110) which is still my best oc and that is still runnin' strong though the fellow is startin' to think about something with more poke again. ;)

    The AK33 is an AWESOME little board, as long as you don't need overclocking features. I used to use this for all my Duron systems that I built :)

    I've never used one Albinus so I really can't comment.....It was just a response to God's conclusion that all Via chipsets suck based on his experience with that board.:cheers:

    I still say there are some poor KT133 boards out there, the Epox 8KTA2 is one of them, I've had the misfortune to set up 2 different PC's with that board.
    Later bios revisions help a lot.......
