I am thinking of upgrading my computer and have been looking into using the ABIT KR7A-133 motherboard with AMD XP1800+ processor, 512mb DDR Ram (PC2100) and an 80GB 7.2k hard drive for audio and a 12GB 5.4k for OS.
Does anyone have any experience with a similar set-up. Is this a good idea? Any issues to be wary of?
The ABIT KR7A is a great motherboard. I\'ve built several gigastudio systems with it and the XP 1600+ CPU. 512MB PC2100 RAM and an 80gig IBM giga drive.
The systems have worked out great. The only thing I can suggest is to make sure that the mobo\'s bios is up to date and that you have the newest version of the VIA 4 in 1 drivers and of course the newest hardware drivers for your components.

What OS are you using? also how much ram... what kind of chip configuration? I\'m just curious here, also.. what version of Gigastudio are you running.
I\'m always interested in figuring these things out.
I am using an Win XP with 512mb DD ram... with an ABIT KR7A-133 motherboard running Giga 2.5 final updated version.... with a seagate barracuda 80gb as the main hd partition equally - with giga on one and patches on the other.
