    I (and a lot of other people) would say NF7-S - decent onboard sound, LAN, SATA, etc and excellent at overclocking.

    DFI LANParty NF2 Ultra B. Probably the best Athlon XP motherboard in the world.

    Although I have a computer with an NF7-S rev2 and that is very good too.

    Either LanParty nF2 UltraB or NF7-S V2

    Both great boards and are top choice

    I think that the NF7-S is generally cheaper but that was when i bought mine a few months ago. IIRC i think the LanParty seems to have better success with high FSB ocs. That said, I'm happy running my XP-m@2500 (200*12.5) in my NF7-S and its pretty solid, even with not so great cooling

    Another vote for NF7-S
    You will need to L12 mod a mobile barton for best FSB results though

    Dfi lan party Ultra B if you want the highest fsb. Abit NF7 -S Rev 2.0 if you want more stability, better official bios support & better quality.

    yep, its still the Abit NFf7-S 2.0.

    have now used about 6 of them with various combinations of other hardware & never had a problem, always run smoothly (and overclocked when required)

    the DFI lanparty ultraB is a good board........if you can get it working

    i found it really fussy with RAM & ended up having to buy the gourmet s**t (obviously, at gourmet prices ) just to get it to run at stock, so i won't be getting another of those
    if it ain't broke...fix it till it is
