View Full Version : I need a new mobo - what should I get?

23rd December 1999, 02:56
Hi Guys!

Just switched from an ATI Rage Fury to a new G400 Max, and Im quite happy about it too. The thing is this, I have an Aopen AX63 mobo with the VIA chipset. I get pretty lousy benchmark scores with this config and I have been told that it is the VIA that is almost pure crap.
So...Im thinking of replaing my mobo for something real. What should I get - what works best with the G400 MAX?

Asus P3-C perhaps?

Happy Christmas

HI Kristian

Getting a new mobo, splash out on an ABIT BE6-II. I installed mine yesterday and ALL of my G400Max problems have gone, HOORAY.

Over the christmas period I will be overclocking my P3-500, its just sooooo easy to do.

n.b. If you haven't got any ISA cards and UDMA drives, you could consider the ABIT BF6. Also look at bxboards.com for reviews of a whole host of other boards.

Good Hunting.

I just put an ABit BF6 in mine & I like it a lot. ABits ar especialy good for overclocking.
You will find commited ASUS users here too. (At least, I think they should be committed http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif )
Be sure to shop for price on the internet. Prices for these things can vary $30 from store to store.
