hi ya jc...
but i think youd be disappointed in the Inte D815EEAAL mb...
till they fix the board or fix the driver.....
and more iffy stuff....tyan i810ef mb i think has a bad batch....
fails to run even with p3-550 cpu....and yet the same cpu/mem/disk
works on the intel d815eeaal mb....as does on a ca810eal
and if you're looking around....
the dual p3-cpu mb from supermicro is currently out-of-stock...
guess too many people want um....onboard nic, onboard svga,
onbord scsi3, onboard sensors, etc...
