    After many frustrations with my video card not working with my MSI Neo2 865pe, I've decided to buy a new board so I'm gonna go with the 875p. Any suggestions on which board to get? The only one I'm familiar with is the ASUS P4C800 and I know there is a new P4C800-E out now.

    It would be nice if you could post your opinions on your new MB.
    I had a
    MSI 875p NEO-FIS2R and was very impressed with it my p4 2.4b ran stable but warm @ 2.8 and ran for 16 hours @ 3.06 (case open desktop fan blowing in), however it fell over about 4 months ago and MSI sent me (according to my supplier Dabs a 865PE NEO2FIS2R in its stead I,m not impressed and waiting to get my cash back so I can replace it with a new MB and a 2.4 or 2.6c.


    So Im still looking around for a new Mb

    If you want the best overclocking 865 board get the Abit AI7.

    If you are going for max scores you will want 875, in that case the best clocker is the P4C800 however it offers low memory volts (2.85).

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]
    Ti4400 - 3DMark2001 [16,028]

    After looking around I'v gone for a Abit AI7 as recommended by soulburner. The specs are great and with the leftover cash 2 new fans and a set of Corsair twinx 3200lltt are on the way here
