I am looking into getting a new MB to replace my PC Chips M577. I was wondering if anoyone out there has the Asus P5A with an AMD K6-2 CPU, and can give me some feedback on it.

Thanks in advance!

Hi there, Avatar.
I've been using a P5A board for 3 months now and i think its very stable as till now, i've not encountered any problems with it yet. However, make sure you have the latest bios version 1003 before using AGP as it causes some problem according to my friends.
Overall, I'm quite satisfied with the P5A after trying other boards which proves to be a problem for me.

p/s: I've heard that Asus are not producing these boards anymore, is that true??

No, I hadn't heard that. I found a few of them locally, but wanted to check them out before I dropped the $$$. They are trying for $125, which is more than a few others out there. Hence my hesitation at purchasing one.

Thanks again for the info. I noticed that BIOS upgrade on Asus' FAQ.
