    Question Which Motherboard for AMD 64?

    I'm upgrading - this month's buy will be the new power supply.

    However, next month's will be a new motherboard. Which one do you recommend? Here are my requirements:

    Cost up to £100
    Support AMD64 processor (I'll be getting of them the following month - just the normal one, 2800 - it it's available over here - or 3000 probably, not the FX model).
    6 USB 2.0 ports pref. though at least 4
    Gigabyte LAN
    Support for SATA as well as IDE
    Pref 3 memory slots
    Not fussed which chipset, or what onboard video/sound.

    That's about it I think.

    K8T800 is the chipset to go for

    I've used the ASUS one and it was very good - mine did have exploding Capacitors although they've sorted that now.

    The fastest for gaming is ment to be the MSI one.

    G4 PowerMac - Tiger 10.4 - 512MB RAM
    MacBook - 2Ghz - 1GB RAM - 120GB HDD

    Rotel RC970BX | DBX DriveRack |2x Rotel RB850
    B&W DM640i | Velodyne 1512

    Is that a standard feature?
