    definetly go for the board with the NVIDIA nForce2 Ultra 400+ MCP chipset. This is the newer model of the board. It also has a faster FSB

    hi ya
    But wouldn't the FSB speed be limited to what CPU you have ? (which in this case - a AMD 1800)
    i may be wrong - as i don't know much about this stuff

    Yeah, but a newer board and higher FSB means that if (when) you upgrade your CPU you'll be able to take advantage of the higher capabilities.

    I'd also go for the Nforce over the VIA through the fact that NForce chipsets seem (IMHO) to be more reliable.

    ok, thanks for all advice.

    Just a quick Q, (i'll probably go with Nforce one - just curious)
    Is the VIA KT400 chipset much better than the VIA KT333??
    Ok sweet - o also, any one have/or used any of these chaintech m/b's??
    I've read a heap of reveiws - and they all sound good.

    Yep, I would go for the NForce chip! Also you should take special care where you place your warranty for the m/b. Don't know about Chaintech?:|

    the other thing with the nforse is the dual DDR, as long as you use 2 ram sticks you can get a much higher ram bandwidth.

    as far as chaintech go.............personally i wouldn't touch em with a 20ft barge pole but thats just me ;-)
