At a price tag of $159 for the KT7A and $179 for the KT7A-RAID ( although you can find lower prices easily ) is a bit much for a board that was only slightly altered. You pay the premium for the name and for the unique features that make Abit Abit. Overall this board gave me no problems and I recommend it highly as an upgrade board from Slot A. Should you upgrade from a Socket A board that you already have? Well if your socket a board does not support overclocking then definetly, but if you already have an Abit KT7-RAID you should know you are paying that price for a rough 10% performance increase, is this worth it to you?
