I have a choice of two motherboards for an AMD XP 2900, which is I
believe a Barton. The choices are an Abit KV7-V with the VIA
KT600/VT8237 chipset and a Chaintek 7NJL6 with the nForce2 Ultra 400
chipset. Both have support for a 400 MHz FSB.
Which would you buy? Two more questions, the AMD XP 2900, does it
have a built in heat sensor and will it shut down on its own if it
overheats like a PIII?
Thanks for your suggestions.

Chaintech. VIA still have issues, not least with the latest gen nVIDIA
cards and some games.
Later Socket A motherboards throttle downt he CPU and some have CPU fan
fail and overheat shutdown options in BIOS.
