Good 939 Board.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What is a good socket 939 board that has both AGP and PCIe on it? Must be a good overclocker and under $120 (cheaper the better). Anyone have some particularly good experiences with any 939 Boards?

While we are at it, what is a good CPU under $200?

Cool.
Thanks.

The ASrock one is supposedly the best of all agp/PCI-E combo boards.

You can get an 3200 for about $160, a 3500 for about $200, and 3700 for $210.

I would recommend the 3700 over 3500 for the better overclock ability and the double size level 2 cache.

Like previous member said the ASRock is your best solution if you want pci-e and agp option on the board. For a processor I would recommend the 3200+ Venice or the Opteron 144. You will probably want to go with the 3200+ because the multiplier on the processor and the HTT limitation of the ASRock Motherboard may limit your overclocking ability, if that is your intention.

Edit: You could also get a 3500+ for just over $200, umm $201 to be exact.

If I decide to spend that much I would just go for the 3700 for $210. I will probably end up waiting to sell my current setup or something, so I can get a good overclocking board, as I intend to overclock. I will probably also get some 2x1GB Gkill DDR500 HZ's. I have not made up my mind yet though.
