    non sli motherboard

    Hi ppl

    I'm just wondering what the best non sli nForce motherboard would be, to run an ATI X1000 card. or would i be better off with an ATI chipset motherboard?

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Has anyone got any thoughts. I have a little more info. I would like to use an X2 4200+ and i have been looking at the motherboard below.

    Sapphire PURE Innovation Gruper Radeon Xpress 200P (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard (MB-001-SP)

    my reservations are thate the Xpress 200P isn't as proven as the nforce 4 chipset, but i don't want an SLI board because its funtionallity i wouldn't use, and i want to use an ATI gfx card anyway.

    Thanks Again

    Andy

    You won't find the perfect mobo at the moment e.g. I like my AN8 Ultra but 1 or 2 people have had problems.
    Some swear by DFI yet others swear at DFI ...

    ATi vga cards run fine in nF4 boards so no probs on that score.
    & don't skimp on your PSU.

    Does it make a difference if you run one ATI card on an SLI board, does it even work?

    You can happily run 1 card (either ATi or nVidia) in either an SLI or Crossfire board.
