MB : MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum - Fully loaded and equipped with nForce3 250Gb chipset
PSU : Antec TruePower 430W (I never heard of "Vibe Antec"???)
MEMORY : OCZ 3500EB or 3700EB (2x512) - OCZ "EB" series is the best ram for Athlon 64 and FX.

From what I read, money is no object for you! :smile:

Your specs seem fine to me. Still waiting on an X800XT. Read my woes in the Videocard section here.

You'll want 22-25a on the 12v rail at least. Try this one

I fully agree with TheRod. The MSI mobo K8N Neo2 Platinum with is a superior model than the mobo from Asus. However, I checked the MSI site and it says the chipset is nForce3 Ultra.

http://www.msi.com.tw/program/products/mainboard/mbd/pr...

I then checked the nVidia site and there too only nForce3 Ultra (so what happened to the nForce3 250Gb?? - I know it exists), is this the new name for the old chipset?

Thanks.

Okay, got the confusion cleared some. The AMD FX-53 is either a socket 940 of 939, right. The MSI K8N Platinum and K8N Neo-FSR has the nforce3 250gb chipset, but is a socket 754 motherboard (not for the AMD FX-53 but for AMD 64, socket 754). http://www.msi.com.tw/program/products/mainboard/mbd/pr...


Now the socket 939 motherboard (for AMD FX-53) from MSI with the nvidia chipset is called K8N Neo2 Platinum, but the chipset is the nvidia Nforce3 Ultra and not the nforce3 250Gb.

Thanks.
