Excerpt: The Abit AS8 is a lot of board for the price. Setting up is a breeze - just plug in all the wires and switch it on. It supports the new generation of LGA775 Intel P4 cpus, has on board 6 channel sound which saves on buying a soundcard as it produces very good quality sound in games, dvd and music.
Pros: Quiet, Reliable, Easy to Set - Up and Install
