Hello All! Need Mobo Advice


Recommended Posts

Hi, this is my first post but iv been reading here for quite a while. Im going out to buy a new CPU/mobo/vid card. Im thinking AMD 2600 xp, ASUS A7N8X-X and a Radeon 9600 pro. I wish just wondering how these are for oc'ing? Are there any known issues with any? I do not have the greatest paying job so I can't afford a miss on this one. Thanks!

Welcome to OCC! :)

 

For maximum overclocking, I would recommend that you get a mobile Athlon XP...they aren't much more expensive, if at all. That mobo is an okay board, but if you can affort it, getting the A7N8X deluxe, or any other high-end nforce2 board (DFI ultra infinity/lanparty B, Abit NF7-S, etc.), it is well worth the little extra money.

if you get a Lan Party though make sure you know what you are getting into lol...i've reciently uncovered an issue with heatsink stand offs shorting the board out.
