ABIT AV8 3rd Eye
On the other side of the fence is the ABIT AV8 - 3rd Eye. It too is a standard ATX sized motherboard and uses the VIA K8T800 Pro chipset along side the VIA VT8237 Southbridge. Since the development of the original nForce chipset, there has always been a good deal of competition between the VIA and nVidia companies. This is a good thing, of course, since it keeps prices at a more stable level. If only we could get some decent competition for Microsoft, it wouldn't be so darned expensive for the operating system!
Anyway, lets take a gander at the main feature set of the ABIT board.
