It was to me, but i didnt get very far w/ it. Idk i havent really liked MSI that much so idk, just a biased opinion i guess. I will always favor DFI myself but i have heard quite a few bad things about the DFI NF3ultra.

Abit offers some nice AGP, socket 939 boards as well, but they run the VIA chipset. My KV8 Pro runs on the VIA chipset, and I haven't had problems with it yet. The only reason I would says NForce over VIA is that I think the NForce chipset it a little easier to update, because of Nvidia's easy website layout.

@Lazerman,

Check out ZipZoomFly's prices.

The CPU is the same:http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...ctCode=80699-5

The mobo is $138.25:http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...uctCode=246486

The Zalman is cheaper:http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...uctCode=373035

I wasn't sure exactly which Patriot RAM you were talking about, so here's their list:http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...&Brand=PATRIOT

The good thing about ZZF is the free shipping, which may save you a buck or two.

Here's the vid card:http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...uctCode=322696

All i have heard about Abit is....................alot of crap. Also the Nforce chipset runs circles around the Via ones.

So definately this mobo then? http://secure.newegg.com/NewVersion/...82E16813130468

What about that Patriot Ram, is it any good? Remember I will be OC'ing the hell out of it!

Also I will still have to use a measly 32mb PCI card for a while, I have to sell my Geforce TI 4400.

I suppose the MSI will do good, its what i had when i had my 3500+. If you wanna OC the RAM that bad then get G.Skill.

Man G.Skill is expensive! I'll get the Patriot, it seems pretty good.
