Abit KX7-333R KT333 Motherboard Review - Specifications

Abit. When you hear this name you think of a manufacturer that has brought out some great motherboards in the past. But when they introduced the AT7 board with it's Legacy-Free packaging, some folks had second thoughts. Come join Asher "Acid" Moses as he takes a look at the new Abit KX7-333R Motherboard. It takes the KT333 chipset, the newest Highpoint RAID controller, and then adds back in the legacy support that many feel they still need. Can it live up to the Abit tradition? Let's find out!
