    The majority of the i865/875 motherboards out now do not support the Prescott processors. Here is one that does though:

    Abit AI7

    It retails for $125 at NewEgg.
    Case: Aspire X-Alien Silver
    Power Supply: Antec True430
    Motherboard: Abit IC7-MAX3

    What about the ASUS P4 P4P800S 865P vs. the ASUS P4 P4P800 Deluxe? Those 2 boards are only $83 and $117(US) well within my price range:cool: and have close to the same Intel chipset, except one is a P and the other has a PE behind it :confused: . Is there a difference?

    Yes there is a difference. What it is I'm not sure, but reading last months Maximum PC they recognized that the 865PE was the chipset you want, not the 865P.

    Hmm, I might consider that one. Thanks:) . Is NewEgg reliable?


    Abit or Asus??? Tough choice:?: :?: :?: Anyone here ever have problems with either brand?

    newegg.com is a very good place to shop. quite a few us members get parts from there.

    as for there brand. there is always someone that has had probelms with something (even though, most of the time it's user error ). abit and asus are both fine mobo makers, although i prefer asus myself. just find one that has the features you want at a price you can afford.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    just read a review on 25 mobo's at Tomshardware.com, and it rated the MSI neo2 865PE as the fastest mobo... and for around $130 CDN dollars, thats a steal!:eek:

    At pricewatch it's only $88 (US). Why so cheap I wonder? I've really grown to hate red colored boards but if its the fastest I'm going to consider it. Thanks for the link.:)
