Default Motherboard and CPU questions

Ok im getting ready to change out the cpu and motherboard so I have some questions. First, which of these four boards would be the best to go with for an AMD 64 Chip, or do you recommend another brand/model?

1. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProdu...-131-490&depa=1

2. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProdu...-131-498&depa=1

3.http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProdu...-127-177&depa=1

4.http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProdu...-127-178&depa=1

Second question, on the first board listed up top, for the slots on the board, it lists WiFi, what is that? I know what WiFi is but what is that slot for?

Last, what is the difference between the NewCastle Core and the Clawhammer Core and which is better?

Try reposting the links. None of them work.

Definatly the fourth one.

Look into the Abit KV8-MAX3 if you can. That is the best and most stable motherboard I have ever used.

Thanks for the info. What is the difference between the two AMD 64 Cores, Clawhammer, and Newcastle on the 3000+ chip?

in response to agex000 i agree about asus mobos im not the biggest fan of them either... but i think chaintech is worst off... i would go with that asus board because it was built with the amd 64 in mind... if you want something else other than asus blackmoore mite i suggest abit or gigabyte?
