The Asus P4C800-E Deluxe is an outstanding motherboard.  The Abit IC7-Max3 would be the equivalent in Abit's line.  I have the Abit IC7-G, which dispenses with onboard sound because I already have a good soundcard.

I like ASUS boards, but have switched to ABIT due to a couple of the ASUS models having problems.  Putting out over 100 in the last year, I can't afford to have issues like that.  Having said that, the ASUS issues were all on AMD Processor platforms.

On the Pentium side, I have had nothing but great expeiences with the P4C800 Boards and can highly recommend them.

Hi sammccarthy, I will most likely be getting the P4C800 E Deluxe model of that board or see what the Abit equivalents pack because I have had one Abit board ( TH7 - II With RAID ) and that has been the best motherboard I have ever had to date!

Anyway I posted the PAQ that I had asked before and know that you participated in that PAQ :)

kind regards
