Default Re: good oc board

well, i wanted sli to kinda future-proof myself. cuz if i build a system, i'd get a 6600gt with it. and when that gets old(or when i get more money), i'd get another one and sli it. but i'll look into that other board. thanks

I believe this is the most powerful motherboard in regards to the video subsystem in which it utilize full bandwidth on both PCI-e channels. Very expensive might I add. Close to $250!!!!!!!!

I think it's the only motherboard that offers that feature with full 16x on both graphic slots.

This is another good motherboard with nice OC features:

ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131517

It's close to $100 cheaper than the one I pointed out before and still has SLi feature.

I've had a lot of luck with ABIT boards with regards to overclocking. That was an Athlon XP board, though, but they might be worth checking.

Yes, i have to agree, CJ, ABIT's NF7-S2 was top of the line back in the AXP days, but now, cutting corners and not overclocking features, i would stay away from them.

I use an Asrock dual P4 880 pro, and Ive got to say its pretty good for o/cing. I understand (I think) that asrock is supposed to suck for ocing, but this is a fairly newly brought out board, and its pretty sweet. Looks nice as well, bright blue lol.
