You can sell your old parts on eBay.

Since when? Maybe it was just your motherboard...

I think Abit has a good VIA board, but then again I hate VIA.

I don't exactly like via either but Nvidia is leaving 6xxxUsers No choice..

there was a huge 70+ page thread on the nvidia forums about it Until Nvidia Deleted it and swept it under the rug.

Locked at request of thread starter

To clarify, nvidia spent most of their time developing the nf3 chip to work well with ATI cards, and spent very little time optimizing it for their own cards...this results in poor performance when nvidia cards are used on the chipset, including anything from stock performance to overclocking potential
