I haven't heard much of ABIT around Tech-Forums. So I got pretty interested when aspire.comptech showed my his ABIT motherboard. What motherboards from ABIT, could be compared to the P35-DS3R, P5K, P5B?

dang.. .phuncg... u post a lot nowadays...

but anyways... abit is really good... but i usually recommend them for AMD builds.. but the were really common.. the AWD9-MAX was a popular one before the p35 chipset.. cuz it supported both SLi and crossfire with hacked drivers

Oh, yeah. But then all the posts are usually about builds and stuff. Gets boring, you know?

Well, I was just wondering. :happy: Not too many ABIT builds I see out there.

The ABIT IP35 Pro is quite the motherboard.

It looks nice though vernong! But I'm guessing the P35-DS3R would probably be better for the price.

Between the P35-DS3R and AW9D-MAX? Well the AW9D-MAX, has two PCIe slots. But it is the 975x chipset.

Between the P35-DS3R and IP35-PRO, it seems that the IP35 PRO has more RAID options and eSATA ports. But the P35-DS3R has two more SATA ports.
