Accelenation has made a review of Abit's SR7-8X motherboard :
The SIS648 is an excellent chipset for budget and high performance solutions as we said in our preview with the reference board, it’s been a little over a month since we took a look at the SIS648, with the SR7-8x being the first production board I’ve come across. I have to say that Abit has done a great job implementing the SIS648 chipset, whilst it be without RAID or any other fancy features. The SR7-8x has the performance necessary to keep up with those higher priced boards at only $93 (lowest on Pricewatch).

Being a standard board with no extra features, except for Ethernet, the SR7-8x has an awesome BIOS which will please any overclocker especially with the locking AGP/PCI bus option. The SR7-8x, while just a sub-par board, is definitely worth a look if you're in the market for a cost effective board for overclocking with great performance.

Now I'm going to bed so more news will follow tomorow
