I'm about to upgrade my socket 754 system, to a socket 939 but could use a little help selecting a motherboard.
I'm definatly purchasing an AMD Opteron 146 CPU s939, so no doubt i'll be needing some nice OC utils/features or just whatever will give me the best performance/power so i can get a good proc out of this chip.
I dont think i'll be getting x2 PCI-E Gfx cards in the near future, so just the one x16 PCI-E slot will be sufficient, although if theres an AGP slot it would be a bonus, but not a must.
2x 1GB of pc3200 DDR400 2.5cas RAM sticks will also be used, but i'd really like the option of x4 DIMM slots for future upgrades.
On-board sound/video/lan is not required.
Heres a few MBs i have my eyes on:
Sapphire Pure Innovation PI-A9RX480 Gruper PCI-E (Socket 939) Motherboard
Asus A8N-SLI Premium (Socket 939) Motherboard
Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe nF4 (Socket 939) Motherboard
Abit Fatal1ty AN8 SLI PCI-E (Socket 939) Motherboard
I dont quite know which is best, for what i need, can anyone give me a few pointers please?
I know they're all from Scan, but if theres an MB elsewhere that'll do the job i'm asking, then thats fine.
Thanx for listening/reading guys, hope someone can help.
