Default If Your Feeling Nice, Help Me Decide.

Hello all, I am in the process of building a new PC. I pretty much know what I want. The last thing I need to decide is what motherboard to get. I am going with a Pentium 4 (because I got a P4 3.2 GHZ processor for free from a friend that had no use for it) proccessor. I have it down to two Motherboard the ABIT IC7-G or Intel D875PBZ. I am NOT going to overclock ever (I like STABILITY). So in that case which of these mobos are made of better quality parts that will last the longest? I also don't need onboard sound or video since I have an Audigy 2 ZS and going to get ATI Radeon X800 XT or Nvidia GeForce 6800 Ultra. Lastly, the benchmark seem equal, so that doesn't help...

Oh and also, my budget for a motherboard is $150. If I had more money I would probably just get the ASUS P4C800 Deluxe.

Intel D875PBZ is what I have had since June of last year and it has been completely error and issue-free...and I do not overclock either...

If stability is what you want, Intel boards are the only way to go. Who knows Intel chipsets better than...well, Intel?

The D875 is a fantastic board. Totally stable, pretty quick and can be had for $140 or less.

I was told by a friend recently that I should get the ABIT IC7-G because it was built with Rubycon capacitors which should make it last FOREVER! So I don't know what to get yet...

yep..If I wasn't a mental Overclocker I'd be on an Intel D875PBZ mobo, they have awesome "stock" performance...
But as for stability....now that's one thing I can't complain about..this setup is 110% rock solid...

Are you planning on keeping the board FOREVER?

No I am not planning on keeping it forever, but my PC stuff gets passed down to other people!!! I just want to make sure I get a really good mobo that I wont have to worry about being junk. I think I am kind of leaning towards the Intel mobo. But I am still not sure...

Anyway, don't string yourself out over this...your using them in a non-OC'd system, you really can't go wrong with either mobo...

Hmmm. I didn't know what high-strung meant so I looked it up. High-strung: being in a tense state. Hmm, yep sound like me right now... I guess its the little things that bug me.
