If it has an nForce, then go for it.
My pick is the Gigabyte GA-K8NS Ultra939.

As long as it's the nForce 3 Ultra-250GB or the nForce 4 Ultra.

Good Luck.

The MSI is the best choice. tried all of them Abit and MSI over clock the best. gigabyte have a buggy bios and the asus likes to crash a lot and dosnt let you over clock a vidio card very far. I guess thay started puting the AI overclocking on the nforce 3 boards and its caused a big problem. Msi K8t neo 2 will be a very over clockable board with the via chip set. I have that board it was 1 of 6 others i tried. I picked it. With asus,gigabyte with Nforce 3 and via chip sets i could only get a 12% over clock stable. With Abit and MSI i could get a 20% over clock stable. with a higher over clock on my GPU.

Get the EpoX! That board rules. I have it. Said to have one of the *BEST* overclocking features on any motherboards. EpoX makes GREAT OC motherboards. Get the EpoX. You won't regret it.

saw nforce 3 mentioned.. STAY AWAY! :( nf3=bad

Never. NF3 Ultra is supposed to be one of the best chipsets out.  :ph43r:

Nforce 3 is sweet. only thing i dont like about it is the fact that it has a problem with configuring the memory controler for high over clocks. It can be done but it takes some doing.

no, the nf3ultra is definitely not one of my top picks for a chipset... the major production mobo cancellations should speak for themselves.

if you guys would like me to find you some online material, just ask and i will do a little searching to back it up.

personally i would make the jump straight past NF3u and goto nf4u .. but that's just my opinion.

Sure. Show us the proof.  :yes:

ok did my searching, and came back, and found i was a bit ..errr..whole pile actually miss informed,

the problems i had with the nf3u, were either actually misslabelled, driver related, or isolated cases.   the production cancellations seem to be over politics (mostly NF4u hacking) between mobo maufacturers and nvidia or incompatiblity with readily available components on mobo line, and thus making production, non-feasible for retail profits. as opposed to having any major faults or unstability in it's design.

so why isnt there a smiley with a foot in his mouth?.. my apologies to any trouble i stirred up.!  i fully admit i was wrong. :)
