Looking for overclockable AGP 8X mobo

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Im getting a 6800NU for christmas so i think im going to up my mobo for AGP 8x (since mine only supports AGP 4X)

Since im buying a new mobo i might as well overclock my proc.

What do you guys reccomend for a socket 754 AGP 8X overclockable mobo, also the price must be under 50$.

I think you should go with a board with a nvidia chipset because they overclock pretty good and it just makes sense to match your chipset brand with your video card brand. It seems a lot of people are having trouble with nvidia dual channel chipsets and ati cards, so be careful with that. Anyway go with a dual channel board if you can afford it (dual channel ram). Good luck finding anything good for around 50 though. srry I can't help more.

P.S. just noticed you use 333mhz ram, your gonna need to oc by increasing the fsb so you need a good board with a ram divider, or your gonna need faster ram. 400mhz (pc3200). the divider is located in the bios, a lot of the times it shows it in % and you just change the percentage until your ram is at 333 or less. also in bios 100fsb=200 actuall 133=266 166=333 200=400 nd so on....good luck

The best I could find in your price range is the MSI K8N Neo-V. It has overclocking features and all the basic motherboard features and it costs 58$. It's based on the nForce3 chipset so it should do fairly well for overclocking although I have not had any first hand experiences with this board.

I had a lot of success with the AsRock K8Upgrade-NF3.

I was able to bump my 1.8ghz stock Sempron 3000+ to 2.5ghz stable on stock cooling. And its right at your budget line.

Well, DFI is the king of OC'ing mobos, but their AGP board is $98 on newegg, so I guess you'll have to settle for something less. I would recommend the one in MustangPanda's post.
