Currently have an Abit NF7S 2.0 mobo with an unlocked xp2500. Thinking of
moving up to Athlon 64 and would like to know what is currently considered
the best mobo. System is for gaming and my rig has 1gig geil pc3200 ram,
Winfast 6800gt 2x seagate barracuda v hard drives and a pata western digital
80gig hard drive, a pioneer dvr108 dvdrw and a mirai cdrw.

IF you dont want an Nforce 4,i would go with an MSI
K8N NEO 2 PLATINUM. They are about $136.

The only issue with this board (and all nf3 boards) is that he won't be able
to overclock his 6800 very much, if at all.

I don't know why, but GF6800's just do not overclock well in nf3 boards.
You get these 10-second pauses where the whole PC just locks for around 10
seconds and then continues again. You get this at overclocks that are
perfectly OK in other machines.

Some people find that disabling fastwrites helps fix the problem, but no-one
has really come up with a cast iron fix or a reason for why its happening.

Other than that, its a superb board.

I have the K8N NEO 2 Platinum and have no trouble overclocking my XFX6800GT.
The board itself is great I have a 3500+ running stable at 2.6 Gig. The
temps remain between 45 - 52 on air.

Please may I ask what core speed can you clock your card to?

Thanks
