# That suprises me. I know some vendors ship boxes like that, but the ASUS

The ASUS P55T2P4 is the fastest Pentium mainboard around. It also is
the only one that supports a BUS speed of 75Mhz (and even unoffically
support 83Mhz) (rev 3 only).

I've always heard (and believe) that ASUS makes the best MB around today.
