ABIT Sucks. Go with MSI, Gigabyte, or DFI

Gigabyte make good reliable products, People normally post a bad review over lil things like not enough IDE ports or the memory wasnt positioned to thier liking Although abit do have good boards people just dont like the Fatal1ty because its crap compared to DFI for overclocking. Although MSI are good also try:

based around your price for that abit board
