Motherboard chipset advice...

Recommended Posts

I'm in the process of choosing a Mobo for my new system, and I'm down to two candidates: Biostar K8HNA-Pro and MSI K8T NEO-FSR, which feature-wise are almost identical (one has an extra DIMM slot).

 

The difference that has me wondering is the chipset. The Biostar is an nForce 3 150 chipset and the MSI is the VIA K8T800 chipset. Are there any particular reasons to choose one over the other?

 

Anyone?

Thanks guys.

 

All of my previous mobos have been MSI, Abit, or ECS and never any probs with them. If there's no overwhelming reason to get an nForce 3 board, I won't worry about trying out the Biostar and stick with what I know... :)

 

Thanks again!

Get a K8T800 based board, stay away from the nForce3 150 chipset.

 

I've never used Chaintech before, but have heard good things....ZipZoomFly has their new nForce3 250 based board for $77:

I'm going to be building an Athlon64 3000+ based system soon and will probably be going with a K8T800 based board.
