    Question Mobo's

    I got a kd7 atm with an xp2500+

    is it worth going up a step ? and if so what to ?

    I like the sounds of the NF series by abit
    just a different chip to the kt400 would be nice :/

    assume around £100 to shoot away.

    Although the NF2 is a really nice chipset, and the NF7-S a really nice mobo, the performance gain isnt going to be that much going from a Kt400. The NF2 also overclocks better, but is that really worth the cash ?, its probably going to be negliable in real life applications.
    If you want soundstorm and SATA though, might be worth it.
