:fanboy: Hi,i have a KT600 mobo,and ran it with an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro.I recently bought a eVGA 6800 Ultra,and was wondering should i get an nForce 2 mobo.I am sure i read somewhere that there is not a lot of difference between them.Was i imagining things ? ? ? (help)

The nForce2 chipset has good perf & overclockability but is mainly about features. Plus several boards house the beloved Nvidia soundstorm. If you grab one, make sure its an NForce2 Ultra 400 chipset. We have several threads dicussing those boards in great detail, so just do a search :)

You probably won't be able to get THAT much more outta your XP3200 by going to an nforce2... oddly enough, if you downgraded to a mobile barton 2400, 2500, or 2600, you may be able to reach 2.4-2.6ghz with an nforce2 mobo... I know, it's screwy but true. the XP3200's usually don't OC to well, but the mobile bartons, um, well, they just kick arse for socketA :thumbsup:

If I was you I would consider to upgrade to the A64 system you have the memory and for $250 you could get a 64bit processor and motherboard,then be set, as someone has done said if you are wanting to overclock get a XP moblie 2400 2500 or the 2600,because that 3200 is not going much farther since it is multipler locked, and a Abit n-force2 for overclocking I have a asus A7N8X-Deluxe witch is ok for overclocking but the Abit is better board when it come to serious overclocking.But the Xp2600 moblie I have will run at 2.5 gigs at 12.5x200,and alot of them will even do better.But that would cost you around $160.But IMO I would not worrie about you motherboard and save a little and go the AMD 64 bit route.
