    That is all popular overclocking stuff so it will all be really expensive.

    Right, thanks for the information!

    Would you say that the P4 bundle ($50) listed is a pretty good price, but the NF7-S a little over priced ($100 inc postage)?

    Well, if anyone stumbles across anything I've listed, let me know! Keen to get some period correct retro builds together!

    Have prices gone up :Paranoid: Look I don't know that anyone in here would pay that. Seems to be double from 18 months ago.

    Should I post up a Asus 478 gift with a Nf7 $100 shipped?

    No worries. :)

    Didn't crack on the Guillemot, but it sold 25 mins after I posted it here so I assume someone grabbed it.

    A have no doubts that it's a nice board.

    I got two of these: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ASUS-A8V...724862?hash=item4b030ce8be:g:szEAAOSwx-9WvxwC

    Used it to benchmark a lot of 939 CPUs. All the way up to FX series, and worked excellent. At that price, he combines shipping, you can't go wrong. Hope he'll get some more stuff in the future. Sometimes caps are shot, but that shouldn't put anyone off, just got to get good at replacing them :)

    SLI back in the day was really exclusive to Nvidia, a bit of a pain when you're trying to build something period correct.

    I'd say you can save a lot of money by looking outside of Asus and Abit. The Asus has the 865 chipset, that is so common like sand on the beach. Look for OEM, AOpen and other brands. Same goes for Socket A. nForce2 is nice, but there are many cheap VIA chipset boards. So for what the boards are, I wouldn't say they are overpriced, you will always pay a premium if you chase these brands :)

    Very nice. I've had little issues with the VIA chipset, but on some boards the SATA controller doesn't support IDE mode, so you have to load the F6 Floppy driver to install XP.

    Really odd, as another board can support it, so might just be a BIOS implementation or something like that. With the memory controller being integrated on the Athlon 64, I found performance varies very little between motherboards. Use dual channel memory with tight timings, 1T command rate and any board should perform very well.

    With 939 I would go with PCIe hands down. AGP cards just don't do them justice, I saw very decent performance boosts, even on the slower socket 754 platform. Use an FX though and the boost gets massive.

    Some of the 754 / 939 agp boards are fine Phil with single core cpu's.
    Then just a mid range agp gpu. Let's face it those 3000-3800+ processors are still cheery cheep :)

    But them sli pci-e 939 boards ......bang in the dual cores for the horsepower
    3d2001se has the 462 machines doing 18K, then these ones 25K+ I'm guessing.
    So there's plenty of range there.
