NForce3 + 6xxx Nvidia card = Disaster; options?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So after my Abit AV8 was blow apart by a power surge, I bought a Gigabyte K8NSC-939, which overclocks way better, but with one VERY bad flaw; the nForce3 chipset and the 6800gt conflict so badly my AQ3 score lowered by 10,000 almost, and now I cannot oc my graphics card, or else my score plummets another 5,000 or so.

I looked, and so far I know I am screwed. I can still return the board.
There is a Gigabyte board just like this one, but with a ULi chipset, which I heard are surprisingly good for overclocking.

Newegg link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128307

Are there any other boards that still exist at Fry's (I know the MSI Neo-2 wtv is not there) that are Socket 939, not VIA chipset or nForce3 chipset, and have an AGP slot? Oh, and it has to overclock well.

Thanks so much for ur help; I have to return this board in a couple days before the receipt dies.

If all fails, I can always go back to Abit and the VIA chipset...

HUH? NF3 and 6800GT conflicting? I have that set up and I don't think I have seen any problems.

What kind of conflicts are you having?

Never mind, I went with the Uli chipset; my XP disc is messed up now though, so I'm going to get one from my friend.

Hopefully I'll be able to get a decent overclock with it.

Any honest comments about it?
