Anyone have any experience with the Abit KV8 Pro coupled with A64
3000? No overclocking just good stability. I read there were some
problems with 10x multiplier booting as 9x (Andtech)

I know there may be other chipsets that are better, but in Korea A64
boards are in short supply.

My choices are basically :

Abit KV8 Pro (VIA K8T800 PRO)
Abit KV8 - Max3 (VIA K8T800)
Asus K8V (VIA K8T800)
Asus K8V SE deluxe (VIA K8T800)
Gigabyte GA-K8NNXP (Nforce 3 150)
Soyo CK 8 Dragon (Nforce 3 150)
MSI K8T Neo FSR (VIA K8T800)
MSI K8T Neo FIS2R (VIA K8T800)
Chaintech SKT8T800 (VIA K8T800)

As far as I understand the Nforce 3 150 chipset is the worst of the
bunch so which do I pick?

Thanks,

Wad

Thanks!

But isn't the K8T800 PRO a better chipset than the VIA K8T800?

Yes. PCI lock and faster HTP link IIRC.
