AMD NVIDIA MotherboardsFrom a 32-bit perspective, Abit's NF7-S Rev. 2 continues to be a favorite among overclockers and value-minded buyers alike. This board has only gone down in price over the last year and continues to provide the same rock-solid stability and overclocking abilities that we have become used to from Abit. Throw in the fact that this board, and its derivatives, have been around for a while and you have a tried-and-true board that won't let you down.
If you're going with an A64 chip this time around, then look no further than the MSI nForce3 Pro 250 K8N Neo Platinum. This socket 754 board is known to be a great overclocker, capable of running in a stable and full-featured manner. Being one of the very few boards on the market to possess a fully working AGP lock helps immensely to those of us who would choose to overclock. Onboard GB LAN, SATA support, and 8-channel sound work to round out the overall package from MSI.
