If you are building an older gaming computer this is a good one to pick.

Summary: At the time this board was made it was one of the fastest Motherboards around. I had one of these boards back then and I am setting up a computer to use it. I have owned several Abit motherboards and this is one of the best.
Summary: I had a bunch of old components on the shelf including a Powerleap adaptor. Put in all the old parts and fired the board up. Perfect for an older person just wanting to do email and web reasearch.
Excerpt: My BE6-II is one year old, one year of solid use and a degree of abuse! It's the best board i've used by a long shot. My old Celeron 333 (slot 1) ran at 475mhz on this board and I grinned a big grin.
Pros: Probably the best board ever to come out of ABit
Excerpt: Specs: AGP Slot(s): 1 Brand: Abit CPU Interface: Slot 1 CPU(s) Supported: Celeron • Pentium 2 • Pentium 3 Chipset: Intel 440BX Form Factor: ATX ISA Slot(s): 2 Memory (in KB): 3 x 168-pin DIMM (up to 768MB) PCI Slot(s): 5 USB Ports: 2 I've had the ABIT BE6 motherboard for over a year and it's worked...
Excerpt: I bought this mobo last summer from DABS. At the same time I got a "flip-chip" (socket kind) PIII 700 and a slocket to allow the two to work together (the board itself is designed for Slot based chips).
Pros: Easy to setup, well documeneted, great for overclocking
Excerpt: After reading someone else's opinion on the Abit BE6 I felt compelled to write with my thoughts. I bought a BE6 (original version) in October of last year as an upgrade to my BX6 mainly due to it supporting udma66 and have to say had no problems with it's stability, overclockability or anything else...
Excerpt: A motherboard is the main choice in my eyes for deciding what your computer is going to be. It wont matter if you have a P3 500mhz or 800mhz, if your motherboard is not good then your system will be held back. To start you always look at what the board has and this board has it all.
Excerpt: I have fitted this brand of motherboard into my new computer system consisting of the Pentium III processor and this motherboard comes with a huge 5 PCI slots and 2 ISA such that I can fit all my cards without any problems.
Excerpt: I purchased this board approximately two months ago, after many hours scouring the internet for reviews, ratings and opinions about which was the best motherboard for my newly purchased Pentium III 550.
