Need new Micro ATX mobo ??????????? thoughts

Recommended Posts

Hey all

 

well, my vaio is pi**ing me off so i am gonna get a new mobo / mem for it.

 

since it comes in a pretty sony case i want to keep it, so it has to be Micro ATX.

 

 

i would prefer pc2100 or higher support, or rambus. and also has to have an agp for my g4 4600.

 

i have checked out asus and they only have one board i like, but want to know if i got more options....

 

Asus board:

P4B533-M

http://www.asus.com/prog/spec.asp?m=p4b533-m

 

 

any recommendations?

 

if i can not find a good one i will jst get a new case / power supply and get an ATX board. - just that sony has the front curved so the cdrom and dvd bunrer have curved face plates on them.

I have the P4B533-E board here, I imagine the only differences are form factor and possibly intergrated options... This is the most stable board I have ever owned, I highly recommend it. This board uses the 845-E chipset, which seems to be extrememly stable.

The Micro part is a real problem, not too much choice, but, I ran across this: http://shop.store.yahoo.com/directron/81gmk.html
Which looks quite tasty laugh Gigabyte is a good name.

Incidently, I also have the Asus P4b533-E and I think it's great, but, the gigabyte board has almost the same features in a micro form factor.
