Man, you must be one fast shopper!

I've been checking out the refurb Asus a few times a day, for the past several days, and the A7N266-VM has never shown up.
Even this morning it was gone, as well as the A7N266-VM AA.

But as I type, they do now have 22 of the A7N266-VM AA boards in stock at $49 shipped.
The non-AA $39 boards are gone.

I got one of the Asus A7N266-vm boards last week. Not good, seems to have IDE problems...slow or erroneous reads from HD and CD-rom, random reboots, all around terrible.
Soooo, next week, when it's back in stock, I hope those of you that missed out this week don't wind up with the board I am RMA'ing back to newegg :p

A7N266-VM: what's the difference between the AA and non-AA versions?

Most reviews I've seen show this board as a good value choice. Do the refurbs still have problems?

Just got a refurb AA, and it is an awesome little board.
Difference between AA and non AA is just the AA boards are AMD certified I think.
Both should work equally well.

After doing the simple jumper mod, now overclocking XP1600+ to 155x10.5.
The on-board GF2 MX quality graphics is 4 times faster than the previous low budget systems I was
building, which were based on the KM266a Chipset, ( Biostar M7VIG ). Also, the nforce audio is a big step up.

Simple 3d games like Links 2001/CE, that would barely run at 800x600 using km266a, and had a warning message
pop up about not being fast enough to run Links, now run smooth as silk at 1024x768 with no warning messages at all..
3dm2k1se, while not a true test of gaming performance, only scored around 700 with KM266a, but hits 2200 with nforce1.
Good enough for resale as a starter system.

I must not have gotten tha board redly1 sent back, or I configured mine differently, since this little nforce1
board has better IDE performance than both my Epox 8kha+(KT266A) and my Epox 8k5a2+(KT333).
Can't wait until next week, when my new Epox 8rda+ nforce2 board get's here to replace the 8kha+.
