Stay away from Gigabyte boards. They arent as versatile as DFI or ASUS. MSI was good for the Neo2 Plat. but thats about it. ABIT was good in the Nforce 2 days but now they are going down hill, and fast.

Gigabyte motherboards are just "ok" and I wouldn't completely ignore them. But from what I see now, I would much rather get one of the Asus and DFI motherboards. I still like MSI and Abit. Especially that Abit Fatal1ty motherboard, but the cost on that is quite high. Comes with a lot of features though.

I found that one that seems pretty good. Even though the low, low ratings on the front weren't really a good thing to see right off the bat.

But I suppose things do come dead and some are faulty.

Anyways, does this look better than the Gigabyte?

I think that must be the ultimate one.

Good reviews, although it does seem more daunting than the other boards. SO MANY OPTIONS!

Also, would it be bad to put in a AMD Athlon 64 3700+ in this mobo? The mobo seems so powerful but then the processor seems a little weak.

And I'll need a POWERFUL PSU it seems...

And a good case...

Oh, does it matter if the northbridge seems to be blocking the way of one of the video card slots? Seems like it's really close...

Watch out for dying Northbridge fans. They tend to die alot on nForce4 boards.
