    simian: Whilst I personally haven't used this board, it has been receiving some very ordinary reviews by Abit's standards.

    Its crap, stay away from it.

    You'll thank me later. From cut traces under the board to terrible performance and overclocking.....it looks like a rushed job.

    The specs look great, but you have to look deeper...

    Abit are preparing to release a new/revised Nforce2 board, so hopefully it's either an NF7-S v3.0 or an AN7 v2.0. There's also an Nforce 3 150 board due very soon from them as well.
