    Hello there,
    Im fixin to upgrade my computer and i will also be upgrading the mobo too. I was looking at the asus p4pe board but then i found out about that "cold boot" problem where after the computer has been off for a few hours it wont boot back up. Now im looking at the gigabyte GA-8PE667. It is also based on the PE chipset. It looks like a good buy to me. Im trying to stay in the $100-$120 range. Is the GA-8PE667 a good board to buy or is there a better one then that for the same price? Any opinions??

    Thanks for the help!
    Sam

    Hi There 311Sam :)

    I don't know what country your from - cause money diff's can mean alot when it comes to buying. I'm running a 1 month old SOYO SY-P4X400 Dragon Ultra Platinum Edition and I've never been so happy :D This board is awsome, it was last years motherboard of the year - a little pricy though I paid $300.00 Canadian for it. But if you ever plan on putting a window in your computer for you and for show it's a nice lookin' board also.
    Here's the link to this board if your interested http://www.soyousa.com/products/proddesc.php?id=159

    Have fun decidin'

    I’m partial to Gigabyte because of their dual BIOS – all other things being equal. It doesn’t have Firewire but USB 2 is sufficient if you aren’t going into digital video. It seems to have all the bells and whistles and the PE is a solid choice for chipsets. http://www.tomshardware.com/mainboard/20021209/index.html The 4X AGP wouldn’t bother me but serial ATA would be nice.

    I’m waiting for Gigabyte’s SIS 655 based board to become available but it will be overpriced when it is first released. They are expected out this month. I like the dual DDR setup, so I’m willing to pay a little extra.
