Recently I have read a few reviews about, I thought, interesting mobos. I am very new to this, but I want to put toghether a decent system w/ plenty of room for expansion and oc capabilities ( although I don't know anything about oc, yet ), so I was reading reviews in a few places. I want to stay with P4 and the best mobo manufacturers (asus, abit,msi, soyo, gigabyte) and I probably want raid, usb2.0, ddr sdram, maybe lan and audio on board and full overclockability. I saw superb reviews of: gigabyte ga-8irxp, asus p4s333, p4b266, soyo fire dragon, msi 845 ultra aru (or was it 645?) and some others ( I guess, abit was too slow with their newest ).
The question I have is, why I don't see anything about these boards on this forum? Is there something wrong with them? Or they are still too new?
Thanks for any feedback.
