I'm looking to buy a new 939 pin motherboard and was just looking for some recommendations from current owners. Some boards I have in mind are DFI's LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D, Abit's KN8 Ultra, Gigabyte's GA-K8N Pro-SLI and ASRock's 939Dual-SATA2. I currently own an ASUS A8n-e and want to try something else. The board is going to be used for gaming, I would like some overclocking features but mainly looking for stability. I don't need SLI but it seems like the SLI boards have the best ratings for the most part and leaves me the option to upgrade in the future. Thanks in advance everyone! :thumbsup:

If your looking for overclockability DFI is the way to go. Although the board you have is a good stable one. The ASRock is an interesting solution but is a budget board.

Yea i'm leaning towards the DFI but I do like the upgrade paths of the ASrock. The only downfall is its a budget board that I hear isn't good at OCing and I'll probably want to upgrade by the time I buy AM2 anyways. Anybody else wanna put in there 2 cents? Thanks :-D
