    Best M\B for amd setup

    Time to upgrade from an Abit nf7-s V2 & xp2500M to what?
    What would you say was the best board for an amd cpu at the moment?
    Thanks

    Overclocking: Dfi Lanparty nf4 series

    Features: Asus A8n sli

    Might be worth waiting a month or so to see how the new crossfire and ati chipset boards come out.

    Cpu
    100ish - 3000+ venice
    200ish - 3700+ sandiego
    250ish- x2 3800+
    400ish - x2 4400+

    3000 is a cheap overclocker, bit like the 2500+m was for nf2 but not as guaranteed

    3700+sd will get you a pretty good overclock and has a 1mb cache so is a bit better in intensive gameplay

    x2 3800+ is a good overclocker too, basically two 3200+ cores. Won't get you fantastic single core application performance but certainly not bad. Will be much more useful in the future though

    x2 4400+ same as above but has a 2 x 1mb cache

    Agreed with Dark Horse above.

    The Asus Premium for stock, the DFI for overclocking.

    The Sapphire boards should be amazing and look great - but will cost a fair bit of cashage

    I'm getting a 4400+ and OC'ing it as much as possible: so thats my personal choice
