Go for the ATI, definately. You should even be able to pick up an XTX for not too much more. 13thmonkey a b V Motherboard a b U Graphics card a b à CPUs a b K Overclocking October 28, 2006 1:51:09 PM have a look at wuzy's overlcoking guide to see which boards OC well. That'll give you a good subset to work with, then pick based on features and price. Also look at the posts that ask for 'help...' as there are some common boards running through that, but this might be because they have large volumes.
