  1. Hi. Could some one tell me which motherboard is best for gaming.

    K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI (MSI)http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=K8N_Neo4_Platinum/SLI&class=mb

    Fatal1ty AN8 (ABIT)
    http://www.abit-usa.com/products/mb/products.php?categories=1&model=262

    A8N-SLI Deluxe (ASUS)
    http://www.asus.com/products/mb/socket939/a8nsli-d/overview.htm

    First i was gonna get an ASUS then I looked at MSI and ABIT now i don't know which one i should get.

    Please tell me what you think about each one and/or tell me any others you think are better.

    Thanks, FutureComputer

    I just went through this process. I went with the Fatal1ty AA8XE and it has been great! Was limited by already having a Intel 775 P4 2.8 GHz that I wanted to use again so I looked for options there. Just installed the 6800 GS OC and it has really finished up the system nicely. This board can only support 2 IDE drives, i.e., CDROM and hard disk, since there is only one IDE connector on board but, that's fine with me since I am using SATA drive and 2 SCSI's to hold data.

    On Call of Duty 2, I max out at 91 fps which is game locked and on Battlefield 2 I'm over 100. Very competent system for a nice price!

    All three of those are excellent boards, you won't be dissapointed with any of them. I have the Asus you mention. Not an overclocking board at all, but extremely stable.
