I just got the latest fax mailing from my bits and pieces supplier and I see
that the Athlon is now available. I'm sorely tempted, but they only mention one
motherboard with Athlon support, the MSI 6167. Anyone familiar with MSI ? I've
bought nothing but ASUS boards for years and I'm loath to change, especially to
an unknown (to me) quantity.

P.S. People are bound to ask, so here's the pricing (IEP, excluding VAT)
Speed Athlon P-III
500 194.76 320.56
550 350.40 514.11
600 479.44 518.15
650 672.98 N/A
The MSI 6167 motherboard costs 116.50, and a K6 III 450 has now dropped to 116.
Hell of a price jump from 500 MHz to 650 MHz !
