    My friend runs his comp at 250FSB 24/7 on his MSI Neo2-LS for about 2-3 months now. Never had a sputter or crash or anything. From what I've seen MSI makes a really good board. Refering back to way before, SATA is Serial ATA, or hte next step up from IDE (Ultra ATA). It runs at 150MB/s as opposed to the fastest IDE which is ATA/133 @ 133Mb/s. Also, SATA cables are very thin, so they really help case air flow. : peace2: Mista K6
    Modified Dell 8200 Case:
    -400MHz FSB i850 Intel mobo
    -P4 Williamette Socket 478, 1.9GHz
    -768MB 16-bit PC800 RDRAM
    -MSI GF4 Ti4200 128MB @ 284/581
    -7200 RPM Maxtors: 60GB (2MB) on mobo and 160GB (8MB) on ATA/133 PCI Card
    -Creative Inspire T7700 7.1 Speaker System on an Audigy 2
    -Windows XP Home Edition SP2

    Rock on : peace2: , MiStA K6

    I came into this thread to see if it would help solve my problem...but nope...

    Anyways, unless if you're planning to upgrade again within a few months to the prescott, just get the Abit IC7.

    I'm a HUGE fan of antec power supplies, I won't have a computer w/o one now...even better than enermax.

    I'm really thinking about this Soyo PSU. You can adjust the rails via front panel control thats included. How can you lose with a feature like that?

    soyo? :yuc:

    i've got little respect for anything under the soyo label. Antec has a PSU with the same feature; I'm willing to bet you will be much happier with it over the soyo version.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    After thinking about it it I think I'm going with an Antec Truepower PSU (LIKE JUST ABOUT EVERYONE SUGGEST:) ).

    I took a turn (Hopefully not for the worse) and bought a totally different MB with the suggested chipset(Abit AI7). I figured this one would be a better future investment since I could run Intels new line of CPU's and swap my new P4 3.0c CPU down to one of my other boards if the need arises. I ordered from NewEgg but this site has a better description.

    Abit is good stuff.

    As for the Raid ...i believe that mobo comes with it but is only available for SATA. Which requires a new connector (not the wide IDE). Meaning you will to buy a whole new Hard drive. As of right now SATA is suppose to be 150mb but i don't think its been to be a true 150mb.

    Do you need 2 hardrives of the same type to make raid work?

    No, but is best to have a matched pair. If there is a size differential, your effective size will match the smaller of the two.
