nforce2...too bad you can't buy it yet

of ones you can buy KT333

KT400a may be interesting too, but i doubt it will offer the performance of nforce2.

Thanks.

When is the nForce2 meant to be released?

no one really knows, but i would guess we should start seeing them in a few weeks along with the Athlon 2700+

I concur. Wait for the nForce2 :D

BTW, if you're planning on upgrading your system, you would see a greater performance increase from getting a Ti4200 than a new Mobo/CPU. If you need VIVO, a couple of manufacturers offer VIVO GF4Ti's, such as Gainward.

Even though I heard some people has had problems with the ASUS A7V333,I have had good luck with it,it has been the best board I have owned.It overclocks great and has been very stable.
