The Abit NF7 was the best overclocker. http://www.abit-usa.com/products/mb/...ries=1&model=6

If I was you, I would save my money for a new motherboard and CPU.

Yes they are the best brand for OC'ing, that is actually what they are made for.

They were not grat last time round. It is only because of the guy who made Abit good went to DFI they became good overclockers.

Nubius has a MSI one, can't remember which model, but if you do a search Abit NF7 was the overclocker.

This is what I read
DFI=OC
but I also hear there is great trust in MSI.

If i were you i would use price as the deciding factor-none of them are exactly high end (at a glance)

yea msi or dfi whichever one u wanna pay for.and 1 gig ram is ok but u might want some better cooling for your card and or cpu. i get artifacts in this hot weather all the time. when i load cs the windows are pink and then boxes are black. so if ur gonna wanna overclock get some good cooling for that card . i think my sliders are set 330/1.14.
