BX6 v2.0 co-designer Oskar Wu is a regular correspondent on Anand's BBS. You can't get better Tech Support (or a better board) than that! (Yes, I have one - terrific!)
P-III 500s are down to $728 today and falling.

Both offer a high degree of stability, but Abit allows you to change the voltage, making overclocking a better possibility. If not for that single option, if both Abit and Asus had say 5 PCI and 4SIMM slots it would be a tough call.
ABIT vs ASUS
I want to build a computer using one of these MB's. I have never built one. And plan to purchase a PII chip once the PIII's are announced. I would like any feedback on Technical support comparisons of the two companys. Any any other info. Thanks
Asus, technical support, ah ha ha ha.
They do make the most stable board but...
The Abit has a much greater range of overclocking options.
As stated above Oskar is there for the moment to help on the Abit BX6.
If your looking for a board that you are going to use at home, Abit.
If it's a serious work machine, Asus or Tyan or SuperMicro.

Both are fine boards, and dependant on each individual's experience, you'll hear good and bad about both. Two major points yet unmentioned: 1. Abit has the "jumperless" board which is literally an overclocker's dream. It will spoil you! 2. Abit has a better choice of Intel chipset-based boards. From experience, non-Intel chipsets seem to get "buggy" around bus-mastering, IO port steering and AGP.
