I've just had an ABIT VP6 die on me, and I am in need of a replacement of some sort.

So, I'm currently looking at SuperMicro's 370DDE with VIA Pro 266, or their P3TDDE with VIA Pro266T does anyone have any reasons as to why I shouldn't go with either of these boards?

If so, do you have any other suggestions given my investment in 2xP3 and 1GB Non-ECC pc133 RAM and 4x40GB disks?

Many thanks

Barry

PS
I can't find the Pro 266 chipset listed at VIA, is it just a typo on the SM site?

If you meant that you can't see those motherboards listed as using the Pro266 chipset, you could be right. VIA lists the 370DDE as an Apollo Pro133A board :confused:

Edit: I have come to the conclusion that the 370DDE does in fact use the Pro266 chipset. Read more at http://www.digit-life.com/articles/supermicro370dde/

I trust that the mobo manufacturer knows what chipset they use :) VIA doesn't have the time to correctly update their stats.
