Re: Getting an Athlon 64 system
I had an ASUS k8v via k8t800.(I killed it. my own stupid fault...)
I now have a MSI k8N nforce3-250.
both are good boards for nforce3 your gonna need a =>2.6.8 kernel.
VIA based board will run with a lot older kernels also so unless you are up to compilling your own kernel stick to the VIA board.
Both are completely stable no real downsides.
