  1. Hello. nForce2 without question. Asus A7N8X deluxe is far and away the best AMD Athlon motherboard.

    <A HREF="http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=527833#527833" target="_new">Official Asus A7N8X thread</A>

  2. Agree with halkebul

    Let us know <A HREF="http://forumz.tomshardware.com/community/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=25703#25703" target="_new"> What File compression format you use? </A>
  3. It's not too expensive if you consider the value of the onboard sound.
  4. A7N8X is not expensive comparing to KT400 boards, yet it's expensive comparing to other nforce2 boards

    listen to me or wait for the next patch!
  5. Asus A7N8X is too expensive, do you know the EPoX 8RDA+ ?
    It is much cheaper than A7N8X and it uses nforce2 ,only 110 dollars .
  6. It has been confirmed that the EPoX 8RDA+ has neither a PCI Lock nor a 1/6 PCI divider. Which means, as it stands now, it can't support future 400MHz DDR FSB barton processors. Therefore, in terms of upgradability, it is not recommendable IMO. Glad you brought it up though.

  7. Are there any other boards, other than A7N8X, that are ready for the Barton processors?

    It may be obvious, but I can't see it for the smoke.
  8. The Asus board is not expensive considering you get Asus quality and features (ability to run Barton processors, etc.)

    Chaintech 7NJS (aka Zenith) and Abit NF7-S are also ready for 400MHz DDR FSB Barton processors. But, the Asus A7N8X Deluxe is superior to both of these motherboards in all respects. Note: Chaintech 7NJS has SINGLE-CHANNEL IDE RAID (poor RAID 0 performanc) and NO NIVIDA SOUND! The Asus A7n8X deluxe is simply better than the Abit NFS-7.

    Ditto! Three things you definetly do not want to go cheap on: Motherboard, RAM and Power Supply.

  11. How is it better? You have to define better, it may depend on your needs. Everyone on the Nforce2 boards rave about the Abit and all I hear on here is all these A7N8X glitches. I'm not trying to be argumentative, I just really would like to know the differences.
  12. LMAO, what glitches are you talking about. I'm a Asus A7N8X deluxe user. And have no problems what so ever since i've had this board.

    Why don't you show me a link.

    Why is it better.

    1. Faster than all Via athlon boards on the market.
    2. Runs on Nvidia drivers.
    3. Soundstrom (A7N8X deluxe version only)
    4. 800 MB Hypertransport bus
    5. PCI/AGP lock
    6. From my experience more stable than Via motherboards.
    7. Better compatibility. example Radeon 9700 performance on KT400 boards.
    8. Better memory performance.
    9. Better IDE drivers.
    10. Dual Lan (A7N8X deluxe version only)

    Those are all I can think of off the top of my head.
    Any other Nforce 2 users please feel free to add.

    P.S the only issue i've heard of was no IDE driver for win2k from someone else on this forum that's about it. I'm not affected cause i'm using WinXP.
  13. Nvidia has released new drivers that include IDE for win2K
  14. I was just referring to some posts on here and check out nforcershq.com. Well, I use Win2k so I guess it is a problem. I know nForce2 is superior to VIA, I was referring to the different nForce2 boards. I don't know which board is best, I'm just trying to find out is all.
  15. valid points, I'm just trying to find the best one for me. Abit is getting alot of praise as well, it's just less popular.
  16. I would also recommand ASUS A7N8X.
