is it worth the price to jump from these ~$80 boards to a $150 board

the first 5 mobo's are 754 out of them i would go with the asus or abit, the next one is a 939 socket mobo. the differance is that a 754 socket cpu is cheaper but has hardly any upgrade options and doesn't support duel channel ram.

the last mobo is for the 939 socket and thus is more expensive. with this platform you get duel channel and amd has prommised that duel core cpu's will be released on it. you can also get motherboards such as the ASUS A8N-SLI that support PCI-E and SLI

Do you know which chip you have? because that will make all the differance. no point getting one and not having it fit into your mobo

Yes shorty, 5 posts in a row is a little excessive being they are only 2 minutes apart.


That last board is a socket 939 Nforce4 Ultra chipset, while the others are socket 754 nforce3, that would be a big contributing factor to the price difference.
