I'm definitely looking to buy one, that Epox board looks incredible. Of course, that depends on funds, and hopefully by the time they are for sale we will know the launch time of the Hammer chips.

Talking

I won't be buying anymore AMD processors anymore, I am back to Intel. Instead of the Nforce 2, I will be buying this mainboard which is better:

If you want my reasons they are here:

That VIA chipset is not a good one to buy, as the latest P4 chipset from SiS is said to outperform it by up to 50% for a much lower price.

SiS is in the chipset busines, unless you count their reference boards that is. Not sure exactly when it should be shipping.

I couldn't care less about current processors realistically. I'm a Hammer man.
I sure hope the OS won't cost my internal organs...or I'd have to switch to linux for it (well, an extra HD or something perhaps)

I will have to buy one....they are too cool to resist....

Especially that mini-Shuttle nForce2 system.....I think that is an incredible system...Imagine going to a Lan-party with your monitor and system in ONE hand!!! ( lcd monitor )

Tons of new toys to play with and top-notch performance....who wouldn't want one?

You can do the same with a laptop. Only you also have a keyboard in one hand also, and speakers and touch pad and maybe a mouse and a mic and a camerca and... you see? same thing, only in a package waiting to ruin a component inside.
