    Replacement Mobo...

    Its looking like im over due a new mobo... [see other thread ([url=http://forums.hexus.net/showthread.php?t=75469]linky[/ur])]

    I guess socketA boards must be geting fairly hard to find now?
    - Im not overly fussed as long as it works, fairly cheap, lasts be the next year, and has Sata.

    Another Abit NF7-S, used, off Ebay?

    What's your budget ?
    You could go Socket 939 for around £100.......

    If not, then "Yeah" another NF7-S would be fine. Used ? Why not

    I was thinking around the £25/30 mark, to last me another year or two, then maybe look at a new PC then.
    - But maybe this it just the perfect excuse to go skt939 as you say.


    I knocked up this about 10months ago as my "uni pc" - but then all fell though due to lack of funds (well, i bought a new rc car with the money...)
    Code:
    Case	Enermax CS10068 mATX case with std mATX (285w) PSU		£58.16
    Mobo	Foxconn NF48MA-KS uATX S939 nForce, SATA			£52.06
    CPU	AMD Athlon 64 3000 32/64Bit S939 Venice 90nm			£82.60
    RAM	1Gb (2x512Mb) Corsair, DDR400/PC3200,CL2.5, 			£65.33
    HDD	Samsung SpinPoint P SP1614C 160GB SATA 8MB Cache - OEM		£58.46
    G Card	256Mb Gigabyte PCI-E GV RX80256D-X800 DDRIII Silent Heatpipe	£124.83
    							Sub Total	£441.44
    		
    Cpu cooler Akasa AK-859 Paxpower Pure Copper Heat Sink Fan		£21.02
    DVD-RW	NEC ND-3540A 16x DVD±RW DualLayer DVD-Writer, OEM		£28.96
    FDD	1.44Mb Sony Silver Floppy Disk Drive OEM			£4.34
    							Total		£495.76
    But i guess prices had come down a little since then.

    So if i got a Sk939 3000+ Venice for £68 of scan, todayonly, what would i be looking at in terms of a mobo?
    - How avaitable are skt939 boards with a AGP, or do they not exist?

    Basicaly, what would be a good mobo to go with a 3000venice, and the rest of my current system (see "my sysstem")

    Thanks

    Asrock dual sata is the way forward if you want to go s939 and keep your agp card.
