    NF4 micro ATX or Shuttle NF3 Ultra?

    I'm currently building a new SFF media centre thats also going to double as a games PC. Its gonna have a top end GFX 6800 ultra 3500 winchester, gig memory blah blah.
    I'm just deciding on mobo.
    I had it down on being based on the Shuttle SN95G5 that uses the NF3 ultra with 1GHz Hypertransport (2000 MT/s).
    I have just noticed the FoxConn NF4K8MA-KS nForce4 Micro ATX but it has system bus at 1600MT/s.

    What's gonna give me the best performance mobo wise?

    Thanks

    I think there was a lower-end version of nf4 for socket 754, at 16000 - sounds like they use this?

    There surely will be more matx's turning up soon?

    Cheers. I take it from your sig that Winchester's work ok without any probs. which is good as I was planning on using the 3500 Win. Corsair XMS3500 and XFX 6800GT.

    Out of curiosity, where did you get the mobo from and the antec case too? As that's what I had in mind also

    I would expect the HT can possibly handle a little more than 1600 also ... with persuasion
