    Hi all!!

    I have just ordered an Asus A7V600 mobo but am worried i have made the wrong decision in going for a KT600 chipset based board over an nforce2?? is there really much difference?

    I will be using my existing Athlon XP 2600+,Radeon 9700 Pro and gig of DDR 2800. But in time a Athlon 3200 maybe.

    Please help!!

    Its a decent chipset, but nForce2 is better, especially when it comes to overclocking

    you should have gone with the nforce2 :(

    KT600 is a decent chipset and far better than its KT400 predecessor, but the nforce2 is still king of the hill
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    If possible, yes. KT600 was basically VIA's last hit at the Athlon XP market, and the nForce2 outdid it

    Im currently on a incredibly cack Chaintech VIA333, and i think its balls. I much prefered my Gigabyte board even if i did blow it up!!:laugh:

    You know, i dont even think the Chaintech supports AGP x8 which is useless since i have a ATI Radeon 9700 pro :rolleyes:

    the nforce2 400 is a newer, and generally better version

    nForce2 400 also oficially supports 200mhz FSB, though both can do it
