I really like me current setup, and despite what people say Xp's are still fast and great to use. That is why I put this question to you - I really want to do some more OC'ing, low budget though so would it be worth while to buy an Abit NF7 or just save my money for Socket 939?

Thanks

My opinion is to save up for a socket 939. However, that is just my opinion and yes, AthlonXPs are still very fast which is why I have no intention on upgrading anytime soon.

If you don't plan on upgrading to 939 for while, then I say go for it.

they cost different prices because each comes with different features and variations of the nForce2 chipset. The nForce2 Ultra is faster than the non-Ultra.

But you have to ask yourself, is it worth spending all that money for another several FPS? Your PC3200 RAM and 2600+ aren't going to let you push the GHz & FSB up to dizzying heights.

True, I suppose I should just keep an eye on ebay and hope to get one cheap
