    Which A64 Mobo?

    I cant resist any longer, cant wait for FX53 so have to have a A64 now!!!! So the CPU of choice for me is the 3200+ so just need a mobo.

    Current hardware ill be pairing it up with is as follows :

    Aerocool 520 Watt PSU
    2x 512MB Mushkin PC3500 Level 2 Mem
    Ati Radeon 9800 PRO
    1x WD Raptor

    So needs to have onboard sata and be compatable with the above hardware, suggestions?
    Being a Abit whore im swayed that way, can you pursuade me any different?
    Must be heavly overclockable / tweakable

    GB K8NPRO using the NF3 chipset is another to consider, the ABIT is based on the VIA chipset and they still haven't put locks on the AGP or PCI

    Are you sure it's going to be the 3200+ you're going for....surely you must have seen this link?

    http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=13396

    ...and in relation to this, the mobo question is redefined, so it might well be worth looking at this follow up article...

    http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=13418

    I'm in exactly the same position as you, wondering whether I should wait for the FX53, or just go for the 3200+....think I'm going to stick corks in all of my various holes and see if I can literally explode with impatience...

    Yep on the 3200+, saw the article on the 3400+ and thought It should knock down the price of the 3200+.
    tough choise on the mobo, maybe I should wait till the end of the month, see how much cash ive saved and go from there.

    Do the NF3s have MCP-T ?? Or is it totally different?

    Do all the nforce 3 boards run at 600mhz HT or just the Asus SK8N? Im really not fussed with VIA boards tbh, evn though they now have the 37 southbridge w/ native SATA.
    I dont like sig pics so i turn off sigs Which doesnt help when i dont know what ive written here! DOH!

    its not that intel max 3, its a diffrent one, apparently its one of the firts mobos which allows you to overclock a 64bit.

    so abit..... max 3 (£130)
