Question on MSI mobo

By stevechurch

  1. I've seen a lot of recommendations for the MSI mobos. What's the difference between the K8N Neo and K8T Neo and the K8N Neo Platinum. I've also seen a K8M Neo-V. Lots of confusion here!
    I expect to be using the Athlon 64 3000+.
    Any negatives about these boards. Or alternatives.


    Just to add more confusion how about the MSI K8TM-ISLR which is a lot cheaper (but only 3 PCI slots)?

    Hi steve,

    This is my personal opinion (no flaming intended!), but I have found MSI boards to be cheap and unreliable (talking from experience).

    I highly recommend purchasing an Abit or Asus board instead.

    The Abit IS7 is an excellent board that has yet to fail me - its cheap as well :)

    [EDIT] Just realised you are using an AMD - go to and select a prefered Abit board.
