  • Looking for Suggestions

    I am looking at 2 motherboards for the GMC Truck install.

    1) Asus P4PE
    Up 3.0 CPU. Nice ATX motherboard, power hog

    2) Jetway 1.5 GHz
    # VIA CN700 Northbridge + VT8237RP Southbridge chipset.
    # Support VIA C7-D Nano-BGA processor.
    # Support Front Side Bus 133MHz .
    # Single Channel DDR2 533 Memory DIMM .
    # Support 2 Serial ATA Devices with RAID 0,1 .
    # Support PCI 120-Pin Adapter Conn , With Expansion Daughter-boards .
    # 10 / 100 Ethernet LAN Supported .
    # AC, 97 6 Channel Audio CODEC.
    # VIA VT6307S IEEE1394a Controller .
    # 17 X 17CM Mini-ITX Form Factor.

    I plan to install a second battery in the truck with a diode isolator.
    Space is a little tight for the Asus but can do it.

    What would you choose and why?

    Neither.
    The Asus is a power hog and too many people on these forums have had too many problems with Jetway boards.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

      Neither... For the hassle that either of those would cause, I'd just buy an Infill G4 or something.

      Just my opinion...

        Niether.

        The Jetway is the lesser of the 2 evils, but I wouldnt touch jetway with a 10' pole (made of course by RAM DIMMs that arent compliant with Jetway boards but work with everything else and of course duct tape).

          The qustion is...What you going to do with it? Are you going to run RR,CF or SD. Do some GPS. I'll go with the Intel D201GLY2. It's cost from $70-80. I have it in my car running RR and FreeICE 1.9 with no problem.

                  ^^^ That MB seems to have become the standard these days. Generally a good performance/price point.

                    I'd also like to cast a vote for "neither" and recommend the D201GLY2.
                    I've been very happy with it and my friend with at Jetway has had some problems.
