    nForce2 mobo for £60?

    Hi!


    Can anyone recommend an nForce2 mobo for around £60?

    Atm, i'm torn between the Abit NF7 (non S) and the Soltek SL-75FRN2-L (Golden Flame).

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers
    Ed

    Pay the extra and buy the NF7-S They can be had for around £75 ish. The extra features are well worth it

    Wow, answer within 2mins

    The main problem I have with the NF7-S (read : parting with the extra cash) is that this is for a system that will not be overclocked. Then again, it wont be upgraded anytime soon so....

    Just pay the extra money

    Seriously, it's worth it. Serial ATA controller for an extra £15... bargain and future proofing

    It's so stable, you will love it

    The motherboard is the heart of your rig, never scrimp on it ..

    And firewire, and Soundstorm, and a SATA -> PATA converter, and SATA RAID, Well worth the extra £15
