Hows this board?


Anyone use this board with linux http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...130-448&depa=0
right now I have a ecs elite group mobo and it sucks, i posted awhile back trying to resolve slow and unstable linux system, well i can only narrow it down to the board, I have tried many linux distros with same luck slow and unstable, I can't think of what else could be causing problems, 640mb of PNY Ram, 1.8ghz P4 northwood, maxtor ATA/133 120gb hd, GeForce 4 Ti4600, so if anyone has this board, how does it rank up? Is it worth trying and buying because i'll need new ram too if i buy this board since I am using sdram and this takes ddr.

I would recommend

GIGABYTE 7N400-L1

This has similar features except SATA but uses AMD 2500 CPU for good performance at a better price.

Newegg has it too:
GA 7N400-L

ur processor isn`t what it could be... maybe u could (funds allowing) upgrade ur processor and mobo, this way u could see it as a one off spend, and not have to worry about it matching up to what u require from ur system....u do not specify which location u are from in ur profile... but on ebay worldwide u can pick up new mobos etc cheaply and if u r in the uk then maybe try out planetmicro which sell everything u could need at really good prices..(sorry mods if thats advertising just find they r a really good place to shop).... it would be a shame to but a decent mobo and then be let down by ur processor......but having said that it depends what u want from your system :-)

Have you done a thorough memory test? You can download memtest86 and boot it from floppy.

You need rawrite in that other OS to make the floppy. dd works in Linux.
