Just trying to mend a PC with an Abit board in, have Abit gone bust or is this really their website?
 
 
I've never rated their kit (Just ordered replacement MSI board) but that website blows goats and a quick Google leads me to think it could actually be their!!!!
 
Confused
 
PLEASE someone tell me I am wrong and send me a better option....

Abit was always bit shonky, compared to Asus.

Then Gigabyte stepped up their game.  The End.

I've still got a BP6 based computer in the shed. I'll have to fire it up again some time. It seemed fast in its day with overclocked dual Celerons.

They were closed in ~2009 IIRC, I'm still using an IP35 with no real problems, so not all of their products were total crap.

yeah... all the older late 90's boards were fantastic!... they just lost sight and went for the $$$$ instead and tried to maximize their profits with cheaper parts, sorry, EVEN cheaper parts LOLLOLLOL
