DFI LanParty

Probably will be a bit hard to find nowadays though...

Yeah, the Lanparty is _the_ 754 board. 2 of the 3 computers in my house have that motherboard. You *are* a little late to the party, however. Like Pook said, they're not sold anywhere, really.

If you can't find that, the Biostar TForce 6100 is supposed to be a good overclocker. (It might be easier to find, being newer. It came out long after the Lanparty)

EDIT: The Lanparty is quite amazing. Look here and there. Right now there is one on Ebay.

Honestly, I'd say upgrade to AM2..a cheap AM2 board (~$50), cheap DDR2 ($30), and an X2 would probably be less than what you could find a LanParty for -- and at stock, it would dominate any S754 rig.

Had the S939 6100 variant of the TForce....kick ass board. Did 300FSB and was $70.

S754 didn't shine like the S939 version though.

BTW - I was born and raised in Manassas.

see if you can find a NF3-250gb if you want to ove clock your CPU...I still have one fairly new in the box that I never got around to clocking and went straight into 939...also got a 3400-2.4ghz cpu that the board recognizes as a 3300? weird cuz the 3300 were Semprons with 128cache' and this one is 512cache and those only came in 2.4ghz... the 2.2ghz were 256cache...anyhow...

Motherboardpro.com has NF3-250gb's fer sale for like 90.00 as refurbs...
