Default Most Dependable 939 OCable board?

I want to upgrade to a venice platform and overclock. Im looking for something around $100. And I have an AGP Leadtek 6600gt which i want to keep, no PCI-X. I was considering the MSI k8t NEO2-f Ptnm.. But then I heard about all the problems, so......

I want a good 939 board that is cheap, dependable, and will overclock decently.

HELP ME OUT

Thanks!

DFI nf4 SLI-DR, best board money can buy, more OC options than you can shake a keyboard at.

Also he wants to keep his AGP card so im sure he cant fit that into a PCI-E slot. I would say the NF3ultra DFI Lanparty or the MSI Neo2 PE.

Go with the MSI K8n Neo 2 Platinum. Its AGP, great for OC'ing, and very stable. I have used 3 of them, and never had a problem. The person who taught me how to build computers has built over 10 computers with them and hasnt had a problem

Just because Nubius doesnt like something doesnt mean we all dont have to like it.

Anyways, MSI K8N Neo2's are a great board for the price
