Question amd mobo


i am looking 2 buy a good, fast mobo that is less than £110
i will use it 4 playing CoD2 and put an amd 64 venic 3000+ in it

i ahve heard that both dfi and msi r good but the dfi boards r
complicated and dont work with many different things
i would rather use a simpler board

and also can anyone recommend any good ram?

DFI Lanparty if overclocking, MSI K8N if not.

hey flanker, what do you mean MSI K8N if your can still OC pretty good with a MSI board.

if you want to OC like crazy and mess with all these timings and tweaks and stuff like that DFI nF4 ultra-D or DFi nF4 SLi-DR (if you need to SLI) is your choice

if you want moderate OCing get an MSI K8N NEO4-F or the MSI Sli board.

Agreed. If you're overclocking happy, DFI is for you. If you want an awesome board that's more affordable, MSI K8N is for you. It still OC's, but it's not as in depth. It's a SOLID board though.
