    ABIT SH6 vs. ABIT BH6 (p3 700@980)

    On an earlier topic I found out that the sorce of my overclocking bain was my video card. It could not support the high 93MHz AGP bus that it had to go though to run at 980 (7x140). After I found that out, I went looking for a new motherboard ($100 vs. a $300 video card). I was looking at the ABIT SH6 but I did not know how it performed comparied to the BF6. I have a slot 1 p3 so I have to go slot1. With all this in mind, would you go SH6, keep the BF6, another motherboard, new mobo and prossor together (no money for that tho)?

    the i815 chipset isnt as fast as the bx chipset, but its not very much, maybe 2-3 fps in games. whats the highest speed can you get everything stable at? if its higher than 900mhz, i think that you should keep your current mobo, but slower than that, then try the SH6

    That's a really tough call to make. Have you cinsidered the VIA694X chipsets? Is it even an option? For gaming, the BX is still the best but if you really want to get MHZ out of youre chip then the VIA might be a viable solution?

    Your Hard Drives can now run at UDMA/66 and your your AGP will be at 70 MHz which is almost close to spec.

    Have you considered?
    ? Quantum Physics ? Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
