    Hi people,

    I'm about to buy the ABIT AT7-MAX2 in order to start playing with overclocking world (and probably caused severe dents in my pocket at the same time as things go overtemp :eek:))
    The new mobo has an 8x AGP slot. I have a GF4Ti4600. Am I right to assume that the 8x slot won't make an ounce of difference to the overall performance due to the fact the card was designed with 4x in mind?

    Does anyone know if ABIT's allow the locking of the PCI/AGP frequencies?

    Anyone know the safezone for a XP2000 processor?

    Happy new year!

    abit boards have always allowed overclocking adjustments to the frontside bus, etc.

    Your correct, your video card will only run at 4x.

    Here is a review and some talk about the bios options
