    Looks good, just make sure your 8KHA is a "+" model

    It is confusing sometimes

    on the Epox EP-8K7A & EP-8K7A+, the "+" does refer to a RAID controller.

    on the Epox EP-8KHA & EP-8KHA+, the "+" refers to the KT-266a chipset as opposed to the original KT-266 on the non"+" board

    as someone who's used both - trust me the 8KHA+ is well worth the extra couple of $$:thumb:

    Agreed!

    As a recent convert to EPoX, I too can vouch for their awesome board. Between the DDR and the stability, it's nearly impossible to beat it...especially since the price is in the realm of the "Budget Boards".

    And overclockability? Take a look at my signature and you'll get the picture... and I'm confident that it will do more since I haven't even had time to properly tweak the board settings yet. :D

    Okay, I just emailed the company I purchased from and ask them to change my order to the "+" board :)

    Thanks PEOPLE :)

    I would go with the Athlon XP 1600+
    It can easily do the same clock speed as the 1800+ and is a only a few buks extra. Plus, I cant even seem to find the 1500+ for sale at the online stores I frequent....

    The 1600+ is a mere AU$270
    Which would be next to nothing in US $$$

    Cant go wront with Kang Tong...err, the 1600+

    I'd have gone with a T-bird, after all, isn't the 1600+ sim speed as a 1.4 TB ?!

    They're both 1.4 GHz - but with the XP you get SSE support, cooler operating temps & more OC'ing head room +++
