Motherboard Suggestions 754 Clawhammer

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I just received a 3200+ Clawhammer Socket 754 CPU and I am looking for a stable motherboard with overclocking options available. It needs to support AGP video card. I was considering the MSI K8T NEO FIS2R or Gigabyte GA-K8U Socket 754 ULi M1689 suggestions would be appreciated, price is not a major concern but an affordably priced board would be welcome

Stick to the nforce 3 250gb chipset for skt 754

I agree that there is nothing wrong with going the ASUS K8N-E nf3 250Gb.
It appears as thogh the DFI is out of stock at newegg.

What about these:
DFI UT NF3 250-AL nForce3 250 or
DFI NF3 250-AL nForce3 250
I cant really see a lot of difference in the 2 except the sound quality and one has 2 memory slots the other one has 3

I would sugest you going with the ASUS K8N nf3 250Gb, I have it. It's stable, OCs well and the audio codec is decent, what could you ask more from such an out-dated technology? The ASUS K8N Deluxe on the other hand, would be an excelent chioce, only I don't think it's worth all that money.
Bare in mind I'm an ASUS fanboy, thow.
