Its a great board for over clocking. All the options you need for an over clock.

nf4 supports SLI and the nf3 does not, and there SATAII support and some other few things.

But if you want to stay agp...I would say get it.

Cool, doesnt sound like stuff I plan to use in the near future (nf4 upgrades).

It's not that I want to "stay agp", it's just that I spent 200 bucks on my agp 6800 a few months ago and dont want to put all the money to waste just yet. That's why I want a board that supports both agp8x AND pci-e. That way I can upgrade to PCI-e in the future without getting a new mobo at that time as well.

What is a neo platinum 2 worth anyway? Here's one on Ebay...

I know you want a pci-e slot, but if you find you need to settle for a board with just agp, I use the A8V from ASUS. I have the opteron 148 and the only thing holding my OC back is the RAM. I'm still at 2.7 though, at stock voltage. A lot of people don't like the VIA chipset here, so it's up to you, but as I said, no major problems here so far.

Is this the right board? http://www.msi.com.tw/program/produc...il.php?UID=607

Doesn't say that it supports pci-e? Are you sure this isnt AGP only
:EDIT: just read a review on it and it doesn't support PCI Express, DOH!

If only I could sell my 6800agp to someone for like 140 bucks then i'd be ok with getting a PCI-e only mobo and upgrading my video card too

Think I should ebay it?
