i just read a review that had the two board matched one on one and they were basically identical. i'd have to say that ABIT would seem to be a better deal than the MSI

Why were you tempted that way? Is it worth another $90 (275 as opposed to $185)

What? That's pure BS, don't listen to that garbage. No such thing happens. I don't even know where someone would get an idea like that

i was just on the ABIT forum and it seams that people who have bought this board hate it. it has shocking temperiture readings and ABIT hasn't fixed the problems yet
