Kind of depends on what CPU and RAM you are wanting to use and what you wish to achieve with the combination.

The Fatal1ty AN8 is the nforce4 ultra with the OTES cooling but you pay for it. The AN8 is the nforce4 with the OTES as well and the KN8 is the nforce4 with no OTES.

The KN8 will do the job if into a moderate overclock and mid range to high RAM.
With the Fatal1ty being the one to get the last extra bit of performance out of the combination.
As I stated depends what you use with it and what you want to do with it.

cheers

I was think of putting a A64 x2 4200+ and maybe a geil dual channel 1024mb memory.

And maybe just do some light overclocking with it.

I would opt for the Fatal1ty AN8 if chosing from those three alone, providing the pricing was reasonable.
