Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 impressions
Just wondeing what everyone's impressions of this motherboard are. I've been trying to built a beastly computer system for quite some time, however i received a DOA motherboard so i haven't got to try this thing out yet. From the reviews i've read its the best XP board on the market (at the time) the 4 DDR slots are nice as well as many other features that i prefer on gigabyte boards.... thoughts?

I have a Gigabyte board, it owns! Really nice features and excelent tool kit, including an Auto Win32 based OC tool
With all the subtlety of an artillery barrage / Follow blindly, for the true path is sketchy at best. .:Bring OS X to x86!

The max bus speed is 400 mhz on the proc and it doesn't support hyper threading, you should step it up to 800 mhz and make sure it supports hyper threading, it helps it out a lot when you are doing multiple processor intensive applications.

i probably should have mentioned that i already have my processor, i have an AMD XP 3000+ w/ 400FSB ... the intels are just too darn high, and when the amd's can compare for much much less i'll go with them every time!
