Soyo motheboards haven't been good in my experience. YMMV.

Re: Cheap PC Alert

You want your motherboard to be very good, most important thing in the system, to me anyways. It is the one thing that will give you nothing but a freaking headache, even moreso that Windows IMHO. ABit or Asus, I won't touch anything else anymore. And you can keep your Dell too, cuz I'm losing respect for them everyday

Re: Cheap PC Alert

Hmm...maybe there is a reason I havent used a Soyo then

I have an Asus and an Abit, had some odd issues with a few Asus PIII models back when...and got a FIC now as well. Suprisingly the FIC is the cheapest of the bunch but is a pretty solid performer.

Booth, surely you jest when you say something is more of a PITA then Windows? What fun is an os if its working all the time!

Dell..depends on the day. Their stuff is pretty bulletproof 98.6% of the time, but IMO if you get a bad one, you're better off to just write it off on day 1 and maybe use it to secure that rowboat you've been so worried about it floating away... I sent them my laptop for something like a mouse button and it came back great/fast/etc. I got into reading stuff and later found out they upgraded my system board..uhoh...and did some other joyous things to it . Now I have a laptop that randomly resets (at will, no windows interraction) and charges batteries about 1/2 the time, the other 1/2 it just tells me they are missing or 28% charged...even when bays are empty.
We wont get into the poweredge 2600 w/dual Xeons and virtual processing disabled on the bios...yet the machine still thinks it has 4 processors and i get all sorts of bizarre heap this stack that thread this dll that cache this errors on...I think that one's making a trip to the local yacht club

But like I said...when they DO work, they are worthy of the might honda emblem.

..and thanks for lending the info on the Soyo's doodez. Ill edit the topic appropriately I guess
