  2. So the NVIDIA nForce3 250 is better than the VIA K8T800? I want whatevers best for overclocking.
  3. VIA isn't for overclocking, since they don't offer AGP/PCI lock, however the new VIA chipsets are coming out, and they promised AGP/PCI lock, but i haven't seen any yet. Just stick with NForce3 250/GB.

  4. Scott's got right except for the best budget board. That has to be the Chaintech VNF3-250 @ $69.00. The highest clock I've seen on it is 240mhz. :smile:

  5. Unless you lower the HT multiplier.

  7. I've never tried it with 69, but that is a kinky idea! Mwave.com [while they last].

  8. What about Shuttle? I just bought shuttles AN51R, with hopes of overclocking it. From a few reviews, its overclocks decently. Here is its link...

    And here is just one review about it. Its a pretty stable, basic board, but it overclocks decently, as long as you take into account extra cooling.

    I hope my 3 cents helped.

  9. Hehe, dragging up old post I see! Anandtech did a review a couple weeks ago showing the best A64 overclocking board, I think it was a DFI again.
