Asus A7V880 experience

Hi all.

Bought this new mobo last friday (my old A7V266-E was not fast enough
anymore). So I thought I would tell you all what I think of it so far.

First thing was to install my old 2200+ (266mhz) Cpu and my old 512 mb PQI
ram. System start went okay but there where some issues with the onboard
Ethernet adapter and my Creative Pci soundcard. Problem were solved with the
new Bios 1004.

At 266 fsb everything runs fine, more smooth than the old mobo but of course
not that speed experince I was after.

So I had to spent some more money and buy the XP 3200+ (400mhz) cpu and
2*512 mb ram DDR3200 that way I could use the new dual channel system.
Installation went fine and no problem at bootup. All you have to do is tell
the mobo its 200 mhz fsb and dram is 400 mhz now in order for the bios to
get the right speed and report the correct CPU (VERY IMPORTENT).

Now the new mobo runs 100% perfect. All I can say..... buy it.... Its cheap
and reliable.
