Whats the possibilities?
I haven't posted in a while but here I go...

I have finally finished the buying spree in tweaking my PC. Wish I went 64bit but didn't. :( I need a lil help with tweaking my Bios to give me a lil extra speed. I have 2 different mobos but ones being RMA'ed at the moment. Which one do you guys think I should use?

Heres the specs:

Abit AN7
Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 Rev2
AMD Athlon XP 3200+ 400fsb
1 Gig of Patriot 3200 (2-2-2-5)
ThermalTake Volcano 11 Xaser Edition
Gigabyte 6600GT AGP 8x 128mb
2 80gig WD harddrives raided 0
420w Powersupply

I don't think the Gigabyte GA-7N400 offers the same tweakability that the AN7 does, BIOS-wise. The last one I had was pretty slim in that department, but was otherwise a fine board. The AN7, on the other hand, offers a whole slew of overclocking options. That damned µ-Guru, though, was the worst piece of crap ever foisted on mankind in the guise of an 'overclocking friendly feature', in my experience. Make sure you update to whatever the latest BIOS is.

Of course ABIT AN7 is better for o/c gizmo. :)
I had thrappuccino this Gigabyte (LOL just for 2 days cos I sent it for RMA easily) and it was stable but no many options in BIOS and terrible dip switches (I do not know about newer versions).
On the other hand ABIT NF7-S v2.0 was one of my most favourite Barton based mainboards cos I put modded TicTac BIOS from ABIT USA forum and reached 260+ MHz FSB.
