im going to get the soyo one or the msi version. im still deciding. both companys make good motherboards for the kt266a. if you need usb 2.0 go with msi, but if you want built in ethernet and 5 channel sound pick soyo
Yodda I to have a fv 24 its awesome I use it as a home entertainment comp. Installed combo dvd/cdrw, 40 gigs, sb live and tvpvr (usb)
its awesome watch tvs. make backups of videos listen to my 17 gigs of mp3,s and it Looks nice.. all I need now is a remotecontrol setup anyone got any ideas on remote I could program to do specfic tasks.
and ive owned leadtek sis 735, epox 8kha+ (2 of them) and epox 8k7a
the soyo is far the most stable in my experience.
Only thing about the soyo is onboard sound. DONT USE IT. 1 its not that good (copmared to soundblaster audigy) 2 its not that stable. (in my experience. I use windows xp) disable that and its a great mobo.
I am going from a OC Celly system.. 300a@527 on a bx6 2.0, 384mb, V5 5500, MX300 sound, netgear nic.. etc
I'm hoping the sound lives up to what people have been claiming. I'm throwing 2 sticks of Crucial 256meg ddr and a 1700+. Hoping all goes well. I'm still debating on what OS to go with... (win2k right now)
