ABIT AA8 DuraMAX, AMD64 PCI-E Chipset Comparison, and more!
Well folks, some of us might be getting a bit of snow tonight. I'm sure some sleet will also make it into the mix. Come on now, it's January and so far the winter has been a dud! I'm looking for a storm right now, but I'm sure I'll be less enthusiastic about the situation when I'm outside shoveling steps and salting the driveway ;)

Which motherboard based on these chipsets deserves to make it into your Socket 939 AMD64 system? Read on and we'll let you know our thoughts on the subject."
