Nvidia Nforce2 400 ultra

Hello, i am new to this forum and thanks in advance for your replies.

I am just about to upgrade my existing KT7A 1.2 gig Athlon and it seems that the Nforce 2 400 ultra is a good choice.

Looking on the net, the abit:NF7-S seems like the best value for money. My question is: does this support a 400 mhz FSB? On the specs on Dabs.com it lists 333mhz, as do some of the reviews i read, but on the website it states 400mhz.

Also, it comes with on board audio chips and i was wondering how good this solution is as opposed to a PCI soundcard like the one i'm currently using, my 4 year old SBlive-value.
Thanks again.
Dom.

  1. The earlier revisions of nForce2 only officially supported 333 FSB, but the second revision officially supports 400 FSB. Some boards needed only a BIOS update to change from 333 to 400 FSB support.

    The onboard audio is definately better than that 4-yr old SBlive. I think its compairable to the Audigy or Audigy2.
