Which amd 64 mobo?

#1
Ive decided to upgrade my processor and mobo..

Ive decided on the AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice 90nm processor but cant decide on which mobo.

I have had a look around the internet but most reviews are for the SLI mobo's, I have an AGP graphics card at the moment and want to stick with it...im torn between the MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum and the Abit AV8 3RD Eye mobo.

Does anyone have any personal reviews of what these boards are like, or any similar priced AGP mobo's?

I have an AX8 PCI-E mobo running a 64 3500+ Winchester and it runs great.
I chose that board because I duel boot Linux & Windows, so I cannot use a N-Force board as I always have problems running Linuux on N-Force boards.
I have been running this rig for just over a month and it has been faultless.
I may be wrong but I think the AV8 is the same board only AGP.

I have the A8V deluxe and it works just fine. Just make sure you get the right memory. I recommend getting some Corsair RAM, they are the best.

I have the Abit AV8 3rd EYE - its a nice board, good layout - the 3rd eye thingymebob is very cool. Okay for overclocking.


i believe this is the best agp socket 939 board out there.

DFI Lanparty Nforce4 has gotten the best reviews I've seen for a board in a long time.

" DFI set out to create the absolute best nForce4 boards that an enthusiast could find on the market. After spending several weeks with engineering samples and now the final retail boards, we believe that DFI has succeeded in their goal."

if you search around you will find other raving reviews on other websites
