With that you should be able to: drill out the front side bus to at least 200 MHz, remap the CMOS to advance the timing, add a 12 oz fan weight for the low speed work, use engine ice for those hot 7200 RPM HDD's, an E-Series on the exhaust with 12-14 disks should keep things flowing and quiet, and the good old 'turbo' switch on those 486 boards really made things fly, so you better get stiffer springs in your chair.
Thanks for giving me a thought to entertain myself for the last 5 minutes
Back on the original subject, Intel and ABIT boards have treated me well in the past. More than anything, I'd say stick with an Intel chipset.

I like ASUS boards. Mine is the TUSL2-C (PIII)with nothing built-in. (I have a card for each peripheral) I like it's ability to do the jumperless CPU clock settings. That way if I want to overclock the chip for an evening of video compressing, it's a couple of keystrokes instead of digging for jumpers in the box.

The only server that drags my refresh down is this dog that's supporting TT.

Will the muthaboard allow me to disconnect the onboard audio?
I will go to www.asus.com and research AGAIN!!
