hi all iv been told that my Gigabyte GA-7VAXP is the bottleneck in my system. iv oc my mobile 2500 to 2.2 12.5 176 fsb and thats as far as I can push it so iv been thinking of getting something like an Abit NF7-S, is this the right choice or is there is a better choice. If I got an Nforce 2 board would I notice a big performance boost as I like games like doom3 and farcry thanks Gwyn.

More aboutwhich mobo
Since you probably bought that CPU for the sole purpose of OCing the hell out of it, then you probably have no other recourse then to try a different mobo, and the Abit is a good choice. Good Luck
