Thread Starter 
ok i think i decided on the 3700+ san diego...just not sure which mobo yet...thinking maybe going with a cheaper one, so i can afford to get a 7800gs pci-e video card to go with my new pro/mobo, sucks im still on ata 100, but oh well for now, my current ram will work too, just trying to decide if i want to get a agp ready mobo, or to just go cheaper on the mobo and get a new vid card...

Dont buy a 3700+ SD then skimp on your mobo. The SD's overclock so well you would only kick yourself in a month or two when you realise that you have not bought a top performing board.

DFI SLI-D NF4 are imo one of the best S939 boards that has ever been made.

DFI are the "daddies" of overclocking boards (for S939) no other manufacturer allows anywhere near the same amount of Bios adjustments/Voltage ranges.

the 3700+ is a good choice. Get either an Asus A8N-SLI deluxe (or better) or one of the DFI Lanparty boards and you won't go wrong. if you can squeeze a bit more budget out you can get a good used 7800GT or a 7900GT

Some of the new ATI 3200 based motherboards have more voltage and OCing options than the Nforce4 based DFIs.
