In the end, your decision on whether or not to buy the MSI K7Pro should be based on one factor only: do I want or need the KX133 chipset? If the answer is no, or the system being built is for a non-power user, then the K7Pro is a very fast, stable board to buy. However, if you play the intense games or use programs that are very memory dependant, the KX133’s PC133 memory bus and 4X AGP slot are going to be worth the extra money.
