Weekly Motherboards & Video Price Guide: February 2003 2nd Editionby Kristopher Kubicki on February 24, 2003 4:31 AM EST

The first thing you may notice is that we added an additional column on the left hand side of our guides. Since we often get a lot of emails asking for more info about each product, the additional column should point to an article that we wrote about the particular motherboard or video card. Please report broken links.
Intel motherboards remained largely unchanged this week, but Granite Bay (E7205) motherboards seem to be popping up with more frequency. Prices, unfortunately seem unusually high, in the 200USD range for even the most basic of GB solutions. Fortunately, we are going to start seeing SIS's brilliant answer to Granite Bay within the next week or so. While checking out NewEgg, we saw the first pre-order of the Gigabyte SINXP1934 which we reviewed several weeks ago.
For the more value oriented consumer, we still recommend the 845PE boards. These boards still pack a mighty punch, without sacrificing performance. Our Intel board of choice for this week remains the ASUS P4PE. It turns out that we still have quite a wait before Springdale/Centerwood boards hit the market, so if you plan on buying an intermediate stepping stone, the 845PE is still the board of choice.
