    Hi all,

    I need to buy a socket 370 board. It needs to support a 1.0ghz chip and above. Helping out a friend here and they have a Pentium III 1.0ghz chip

    I would prefer not to have any integrated sound or video displays with it. I can live with integrated sound if need be, No ISA slots and maybe 4 slots for ram.

    It needs to be a ATA100 mode 5 hard drive support

    Thank you
    Mark

    Thanks, very nice looking board. I love Asus porducts. What's the step above & below this board?

    Pricewatch has the board for like $120.00. Ebay has a couple of them out there.

    I would like to see what my other options are.

    Thanks

    120? I see, here i pay like 95$ for that board.

    Anyway, you need a S370 mobo, and there are in my opinion not any "better" choises than this due to the fact that you don't need any onboard devices. Sure you can buy a cheaper board but i still think this one has a great combination of performance and stability.

    I have had other 370 boards with via chipset, there is nothing wrong with them either but i still think that i815e is the most stable chipset there is to find for PIII/Celeron.

    You may find other brands than asus with i815e chipset at a slightly lower price, but i don't think the difference is to mutch,
    at least it isn't here in Sweden..

    I agree, I had the P3V4X and that had the VIA Apollo 133a chipset and it was the most unstable chip. I don't care for the Via chipset.

    I have a Intel 810chipset at work and it is the most stable that I have seen.

    Do you know about the ASUS CUSL2-CB?

    I just found the board on Yahoo for $89.00

    Thanks.
