  1. since nvidia habe released 4 new kinds of boards and only one of them is compatable with the amd64 3000+ and in my opinion doesnt look all too great(just the ordinary nforce4). would it be better to buy a msi k8n neo platinum?? by the way i will be using this for gaming
    thnx

    The new nforce4 boards are going to be great for gaming from what I have read. They are going to be the first AMD boards to support DDR2 and pcix in sli mode.That MSI board is going to get smoked bad once the nforce4s hit the market. If your looking at buying another new board next year then go for the MSI if your looking at a board that may last ya a few upgrades hold out for the nforce4 boards forsure.

    The memory support no longer has anything to do with the chipset maker. It is only AMD who develops & updates the memory controller & DDR-II is not to be expected on the AMD side for another 6-9 months (there's no need for it).
