    Cheap PCI-E AMD boards

    So is there any ? I am looking at 50-80 range . I have seen the foxconn nforce4 but ppl say it is not good as it has only got 800mhz HTT. Shouldn't make a difference should it ? I am NOT going to overclock.

    I just saw the Abit AX8 (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard at £78.72 from overclockers.co.uk, based on the K8T890 chipset instead of the nForce4.
    I don't mean to sound cold, or cruel, or vicious, but I am so that's the way it comes out.

    just seen, komplett has got the msi board based on ATi xpress 200 chipset. I liked it. *i think * the ati chipset has the most powerful onboard gpu better than intel's on the 915g chipset?(go on prove me wrong)

    Perhaps I should elucidate for the hard of understanding. Gamers don't want onboard GPUs and non-gamers don't care about GPUs. So who cares that it's better than the Intel 915g (which is hardly saying much anyway)?

    Besides, the chipset was reviewed here on November 17th.

    So... it's still good to see some half-decent graphics onboard for once.

    No need for this thread to get volatile.
