yoyo! i have a asus Asus Sk8V S940 VIAk8T800 ATX Sound GIGLAN Firewire USB2.0 FSB400 SATA ... with a althon fx 55 but one of them is dead so im buying new of both. (if ur bored of reading already skip to the final question bit) getitng a athllon fx53 but what motherboard to go with argh!? i was going to buy a asus Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe S939 Nvnf4sli Atx - Snd 2xgln 1394 U2 Fsb2000 Satar But its SLI. Yes sli sounds and is cool but i have a ati card. Can i run a single ati card on sli. sint that a waste:S? From what i can make out it has 3 maybe 4 pci slot, expansion card thingies.my last board had 5 and that wasnt enough! was looking at the Gigabyte Ga-k8nsnxp-939 S939 Nvnf3 - Atx Snd Gln 1394 U2 Fsb2k Sata In as it has 5 pci slots and the gfx slot but it's performance review for gaming was not so good. I got my sound card, tv card. wireless card, some lil usb and other sound tingy but that cna go. Also the gfx card wich on the skv8 took up 2 card slots as they were so close even though its a single card. has any1 got the Gigabyte Ga-k8nsnxp-939? Do they play heavy games ? Do thye run 2 games at once often along with a 3d modeling prog? . yes i find myself doing this sometimes but this system dont hack it like my other one did. While im wokring on somehting on a game (im a modder) i have anothe rgame open or some engine so i can check im getting it as real as possible, but with bad FSP thats just impossible. the pci slots 3 + gfx card slot might be enough if the gfx card can fit in without using a slot up? so final question is. What motherboard is reacomended for socket 939? 1. need's to run good with games. visual display of some sort at all times. 2. can fit lots of cards in. (sound cd, gfx cd, network cd, tv card ) 3. Can take a ATI card.
