I dont have any experince with Biostar motherboards, I cant tell you that much, but A-Bit makes excllent motherboards!

I have an asus with a screwy bios where everytime we have to restart this thing the bios dies and needs a reset every single time! I can also dont really care for XFX's motherboards ether. (dang I type that word alot! )

Id sday the best is Abit, If biostar don't work out for you!

foxxconn motherboards are the worst, I was a buolder at dell, so was my fiancee and he literally had 3 go smoky on him. smoke everywhere! bad mobos!

also when I put in a stick of RAM into a few they cracked! literally!

and ATi radeon cards are very stable! good choice! 9800 pro and up are good.

Default Nice...

I have used Biostar in the past and just put a m7tdb to pasture. If that rig is not a celeron but a full function p4 then yes by all means jump on it.
As for the Ati video card, I don't have any personal experince with anything but the all in wonder ve. Don't get me fired up on that thing.
I would suggest you have a gander at the Nvidia answer to that card and compare notes. Have fun with what ever you get...

Default Yeah, pasture...

It didn't die or fail. I just wanted to make the change to a ddr ram system so I took it apart, kept what I could port over and boxed it up. Trouble was my grounds keeper chunked the boxes not knowing the board with 500 bucks worth of memory cards was in one of them. So I figure it's in a landfill somewhere. Out to pasture so to speak...

I have heard of Biostar before. No bad comments from them.
