    The link works now.... But you should try to get a 400FSB Barton 3000. I'm not really sure, but I bet it would be better for OCing since it's already at 400FSB. You just unlock it and pump the mulitplier and it should OC better than a 3000 333FSB. But that's just what makes sense to me logically. I'm not really positive of that.

    The NF7 does not support 400fsb...

    Can you recommend a board that will fit into my price range that does and has overall good OCing ability.

    Thx

    with the hard locked multiplyers that wouldnt be possible.
    the 2500 is the best as it canbe taken from 166x11 to 200x11 (3200) easily.

    Actually the version 2.0 of that model does in fact support 400DDR Athlons but the EPoX 8RDA3+ and 8RDA3I are also very good overclockers.

    Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro 2 nForce2 Ultra (Socket A) Motherboard

    Ok looking at this one and reading up some info around the net it appears she's a gr8 OC mobo with great features. Also has 400fsb.

    Overclockers UK is selling it for 75.49 VAT included.
    I dont think I have come across a bad word about this one yet... She fits into my budget along with the AMD 3000 (400FSB) CPU very nicley.

    If anyone can beat this one with an even better mobo let me know.

    Thx...

    were talking 400Mhz FSB... And that board even on its official site states 333FSB.

    The page that you're looking at most likely refers to the pre version 2.0 model and in actual fact the top range Athlons are 200MHz FSB but with double pumping give a 400DDR (Double Data Rate) FSB.
    NF7/NF7-S, based on nForce2 chipset (MCP-T + SPP), supports the latest AMD Athlon XP processors with 200/266/333/400 FSB, (400 FSB support in version 2.0 only)...

    Looks like your right...

    Overclockers UK have then made a mistake with the specs and linking the product to wrong page.

    Anyway it dont matter cause I think comparing the Abit mobo to the GigaByte Mobo I would go for the Giga.

    Well im almost done getting a full spec down on paper where im happy with final result... Next step is to start spending cash and trying to snap up some deals.

    If I had been paid this week I would have snapped up Overclockers UK 9800 Pro Hercules deal... 113... :shock: Why oh why dont I get paid this week.

    You can unlock the multiplier, but it is true that it isn't that great for OCing compared to some older Athlon XP. A 2500 can be OCed a lot more from stock than a 3000, but a 3000 is still noticably faster.
