The IWILL KT400 board has VIA on it, and the VIA stuff doesn't actually support 400 only 333...one of those bad naming things again.

I was mainly wanting to get a little more umph out of the system that I have. This would mainly allow for all the initial bugs to get worked out of the Hammer and resulting chipsets. If that is the case, then the wait until I upgrade to the Hmmer et. al will be a little longer than six months.

I have the Asus A7V333 and it run great and is very stable and I find that it overclocks well too,it has all the new features,but I am sure some of the other brands are just as good.I useally research some before I buy ,like looking in MaximumPC magizines and seeing there lab results and checking out different fourms and hope for the best when I buy it.

I've always had good luck with Abit boards. My KT7A served me wonderfully and my KR7A-RAID has been absolutely flawless, especially if you want to do light to moderate overclocking.

If you can wait a while I'd say go nForce2 - that board is going to rock the house. But if you need it now, I say Abit. Good boards, easy to set up and tweak for maximum performance.

I agree - try and hold out at least until Nforce2 comes out. Now's not the greatest time to grab a mobo as newer designs are just around the corner.

I'd been using an Epox 8KHA (KT266) for quite some time but wanted a mobo that could take an XP proc (my rev of the board said "no"), so I dished out a whole $59 for a Shuttle AK31A. Works awesome with my oc'ed XP 1600+ and oc'ed GeForce 3 Ti 200 but I didn't to spend too much as I knew Nforce2 was coming.

I've been running an Abit NV7-133R motherboard for a few months without any problems.

Its stable with plenty of features and I'll be happy with what I've got for a while...
