    Ok, i know this is a very controversal subject, but i am about to buy a new motherboard to go with my Athlon XP 2100+ and my 2X 256mb Corsair XMS PC3200C2 ram. I got a week 0302 AIUHB cpu, and am confident it should hit at least 2.3ghz. I know my ram will hit over 200Mhz fsb. So now it comes down to the motherboard.. i like the Asus best for its features, but i want to be able to run my cpu at 2.3ghz.. will the A7N8X Do that fine? Will the A7N8X Deluxe Revision 2 do 200X11.5 at least? I REALLY want stability here.. thats the only thing i worry about when getting the Epox board or even the Abit board is stability... i built one Abit comp before and it wasn't that great.. I have built numerouse Asus computers (the one i am on now) and i know how stable Asus is.
    - Knowing where i stand on Overclocking and Stability, which of the three motherboards should i get.. 8RDA+, A7N8X Deluxe, or NF7? And why? Thanks.. please help me out here.. too many choices!!#@%$#%#!!!

    i don't know why, but that was funny to me. :p

    sorry, i can't say anything for the overclockability for each one. but realize that the NF7 has the MCP while the NF7-S has the MCP-T... like the A7N8X and 8RDA+.

    RagnaroK Must be dreaming...

    Me being an Epox 8RDA+ user, I can't go past 166MHz FSB, so I'm guessing for you that the Epox is out of the question. I still love the board though! :D
