I think any K8T800 board would be good. If you're considering an nForce3 board, I'd suggest waiting until the nForce3 250 comes out. A lot of the early kinks should be worked out. As far as the 9800XT is concerned, you should be able to pick one up by the end of this month or Nov. if I remember correctly.

Jason awesome score but.

I've heard lots of bad stuff also about the nforce3

I've read lots of post on gigabyte that you have to take the second power supply off the board to make it stable.

QUOTE I've heard lots of bad stuff also about the nforce3

for every person that has had a nf3 bug/issue I have seen the same thing on the via chipset as well.. and this also goes for the 3d bug that will crash the pc right away such as what happened to the nf3 hardocp reviewed and yet this is a VIA

no board is bug free period from any chipset line and Ive ran the chaintech and gigabyte and both are stable boards the main issues are the setup..

no just installing the new HW and rebooting into your old oS.. this requires a complete reformat and install and really good knowledge of the bios settings and the biggy "READING THE MANUAL ALL THE WAY THOUGH" first..

other than that pick your board on features and options.. and if you watch I will be doing a chaintech nf3 review kinda thing for AMDMB.com as there are alot of things thta can be done not to the board itself but bios settings and such that can get the most from the nf3 chipset that alot and I mean alot of peoiple are over looking.

No disrespect intended toward anyone but the A64/FX is a whole new deal so I'd take online whines about Mobos and related hardware with a large grain of salt...

Most people are unfamiliar with the architecture of the A64 series at this point and there is a learning curve on all new tech. The hardware will have a number of BIOS upgrades as necessary. It's HIGHLY unlikely that anyone should be removing components from an approved Mobo without the express written instructions from the mfg. You can be certain that all currently approved A64/FX Mobos perform extremely well when PROPERLY configured with the appropriate hardware.
