In my opinion, Nforce chipset is better than VIA chipset anyday. And yes that is the ethernet.

well, nForce came in 2 version having frequencines at:

800 MHz @ 8-BIT = 4.8GB/s
800 MHz @ 16-BIT = 6.4GB/s

whilst VIAK8T800 PRO came with

1Ghz on 16-BIT density, so throughput is 8GB/s

now tell me a very good reason to buy n-Force-3

alright, so you're saying get the above mentioned MSI? what about a midway solution for cpu? or is the 3500+ 90nm just right?

i dont know about MSI boards

and get CPU with L2 = 1MB (preferred) on 939 pins, and whatever u buy, prefer VIA over nForce-3, i know n-Force-2 was real blast in AMD AthlonXP performance, but this time VIA took the lead.

i've been using Asus for a long time, so i can only recommend Asus. as now every system in my home is based on Asus (1 on Giga-Byte)
