Most people say that until they go Lanparty. The ATi chipsets have had better, tighter memory overclocking attributes than the nvidia chipsets and I don't think that'll change. There are no Lanparty intel chipsets so... RD600 it is. And will likely have better FSB max characteristics. But I won't argue this. I know what I want and don't really need to justify it to you. I'm surprised I've even replied.

ASUS is the best choice for an Intel system along with an Intel core logic and that will never change.

SiS and VIA have failed, nVidia refuses to see its own failure........down they go and the next victim to step into the ring is ATI and that is going to hurt ATI as much as nVidia.
What is the basis of your argument that ATI will fail?

The fact that VIA and SiS are no longer and nVidia just keeps getting a hold of the rope.

ATI is just starting to make chipset and I don't think they're going to have an amazing start, just look at the X1800 series, it was great on paper but.......

For Intel it has been always Intel, AMD even failed in its own and VIA as well, nVidia is there mostly because of the help of HyperTransport which is what has made them the one and only choice for an AMD rig (and also the SLI factor) and not even ATI's X3200 is no match for the nForce chipset in the AMD arena.

Here at Intel, Intel will make the best chipsets for the CPUs, they test the hell out of the chipset before it's even release, that is why in some cases the vanilla version of the board is still expensive. I seriously doubt nVidia test their chipset as extensively as Intel.

Then again, with the merge of AMD and ATI it seems like this will be the first and only ever chipset from ATI for an Intel system. Intel chipsets are second to none when it comes to build an Intel rig, I like several other fellas here wouldn't take anything less.

I've had my share of VIA and SiS chipset and I can tell you that I will never buy a MoBo that doesn't come with a chipset that's not from Intel.

I agree VIA and SiS were the garbage of all garbage chipsets. Intel is probably the most solid chipset for Intel chips however... only the chips... not everything else.

I disagree that the X3200 was inferior to the nVidia chipsets. I had a AMD board with that chipset before, and as you know had a good overclock and excellent benchmarks on that rig. (Opty 170 @2.7GHz 100% stable and @2.93GHz for 3DMark benchies).

nVidia had the upper hand in some features, and maybe somewhat higher overclocks in general, but the X3200 was very very close to say the least.

I do agree that the Intel chipsets will likely overclock a bit better, but I think the ATI chipset can give them a run for their money. Unlike nVidia (who just took their AMD stuff and ported it for Intel), ATI has designed theirs from the ground up.

Oh well... enough speculation. We'll just have to wait and see
