I have had absolutely WONDERFUL luck with the Gigabyte GA-7DX and GA-7DXR b=
oards. My setup is slightly high-end, but here's what I have:
AMD Athlon TBird 1.33Ghz
256MB DDR SDRAM
Yamaha YMF744 Soundcard
CardXpert NVidia Geforce 2 MX (32MB)
some random bt848 videocapture card from Intel
Tekram DC390U3D Ultra3 SCSI
Matrox Networks Tulip (PNIC II Actually) NIC.
Works like a charm. Here's the other machine:
Maxtrox Millenium G200 (I think... only used it in text mode)
1.25GB ECC DDR SDRAM
AMI Megaraid Elite 1600 Dual Ultra3 SCSI Raid.
The first machine is using a SuperMicro power supply (350 watts *sustained*=
370 peak I think)
The second is using a random company dual 400W hotswap redundant PS.
All an all, I've had amazing luck with this hardware. If you're looking at=
it, give these a try. YMMV.
I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish Church, by the Roman
Church, by the Greek Church, by the Turkish Church, by the Protestant Churc=
nor by any Church that I know of. My own mind is my own Church.
