I have done research over the past four days and have coincedentally narrowed my search for a new motherboard down to these four boards. Some things i'd like:

XP2100+ support (will upgrade when need be)
PC2700 DDR support
8x support (i intend to upgrade my video card someday soon...)
ATX design
Good speed without OCing

If anything, just give your personal opinion of which one, no reasons why is needed.

Also, is there any difference between the Gigabyte 7vax and 7vaxp than the RAID controllers?

Thanks in advance!
