    I have been looking into this the last few days. I think i am going to upgrade to a athlon 64 settup in the next few weeks ... From what i read on the net just looking around and doing alot of searches, it seams like for a gamer the K8T800 chipset is the way to go .. in most of the reviews the AMD 64 held its own or took the new P-4 in the game tests .. If your not a gamer then go with the nForce 3 ...

    From what i have read so far the best mobo for me (games) is MSI K8T Neo FIS2R .. I think its around 130 for the mobo and 200 for the chip on newegg .. so it not a bad deal for the upgrade i will get .. as for overclocking the reviews said the MSI board did well .. Hope that helped ..
