    It's time to upgrade my second rig (AKA my wife's computer). It was a nice Epox 754/A64 3000+ setup. I'm looking for a good, still available and economical board that will still help me OC my old A64 4000+ Sandy. The rest of the setup includes a WD 250GB SATA HD, Geforce 7300GT (I know, I know, but it's my wifes computer), Ultra X-finity 500w psu, all in a I-star Nitro full tower. I'm not looking to spend more than $90-100 since it's mostly going to be used for office apps and kids games. However, I want the Mobo to have the capability if I get bored and want to OC it. Opinions?

    Yeah, my main rig is a LP Ultra-D, and I've had some recent issues with ASUS boards. Other suggestions? Also, anyone with experience with the Abit AN8 32X? I've found this board still available with some good reviews.

    I have an ASUS, and have used nothing but ASUS boards for all my builds and have never had a problem with them. I'm sure Newegg has some 939 ASUS boards for dirt cheap..

    Buy foxconn, i had them few on 939 and they were great. Only thing that was bad for oc-ing is low DDR voltage, up to 2.85V but asus is giving even lower voltage.

    i agree the asrock is such a good board for the price, u really cant go wrong, agp and pci ex, sata2 port plus 2 sata1s. likes most ram out there! only bad point is the v-core is 1.4 max without a mod, but thats easy! but 1.4 could still get u a good stable overclock!

    im dont work for asrock i jst had that board and it surved me well:)

    i have one of those asrocks, as well as a foxconn sli board, and would vouch for either, they both do over 300fsb

    edit: the foxconn model no is in my sig

    I'm really hoping to stick with the Nforce4 chipset. I've had nightmare issues with prior Via and SiS builds. I really appreciate the advice, but please reserve advice to boards with the Nforce4 chipset.
