A new motherboard

Hi I wan't to buy a AMD Athlon XP compatible motherboard.
I want the fastest board out there, I have heard that the nForce2 is the fastest for Athlon XP is that true?

  1. yes as far i know

    get an abit nf7 this has been recommended to me and an xp2500 and good ddr 400 memory and set your fsb to 200 and you should have a xp3200 for a fraction of the cost.
    it runs 5 deg hotter than std 53 deg max
  2. The Abit is a great board for overclocking. I have an Asus A7N8X Deluxe board and its a good board. It has a lot of extras like firewire, Serial ATA RAID, and quality audio. Either board is a good choice in my book.
  3. What about the DFI Lanparty NFII Ultra B ?

    Also do I need extra cooling if I overclock it like you said beigeboxer? (you know besides the CPU fan)

    I think I am going to get a 2700+ (2,17)Ghz...

  4. Hey Dave, the NF7-S also has firewire, soundstorm and ofcourse sata raid. The only thing it doesn't have is gigabit lan. I have been recommending the mobile xp2500+, as it still has unlocked multipliers, costs less than the xp2800+ gives ocs to above 2.3 gigs, and works like a charm on the Nforce boards.
  5. Endyen, I just listed some of the features that came with my board. I was unsure if the Abit came with all those extras. Thanks for clearing it up. Hard to stay on top of all these things.
