Which of these three mobos is the best

I have 3 motherboards with various memory, cpus etc that I just swap around and experiment with. I know it is asking a lot for someone to look at the specs of 3 mobos for me but if you have a spare minute it would be appreciated.

ok, I kind of know the next one will probably win given the fsb, and ram potential etc but it doesnt support hyperthreading whereas the pm800 does.

the abit is also in my main system right now and is what i use for gaming etc.

i realize the last two are very close and there isnt too much difference between all of them. maybe i should sell the three of them and just get myself a decent mobo?

    Yeah right, not much difference? The first is socket 939. The second is Socket A and the third is socket 478. Why would it matter which is 'best' even if there were a 'best' answer?
  2. If you can sell them, I would recommend that. They dont make CPUs for any of those motherboards anymore.
  3. yes i know the architecture is vastly different, but from a performance perspective one doesn't exactly 'blow' any of the others away compared to some of the newer setups. I'm definitely due an upgrade and I'm so far behind mainly due to a little package i received in the fe-male about a year and a half ago. I will probably just sell the latter 2 along with their cpu's and memory etc and hold onto the abit for a family computer

    The socket 939 one is the superior because they actually made dual core CPU's for that socket.
