well I think that with the jump from an xp2200 to an xp3200 you will really appreciate the added cache and bus frequency. They have come down in price so much lately that Ive been thinking of switchin out my 2800+. :-)

Hey Matt

Ok ill seriously consider getting one soon then, I mean atm the cpu is the only thing slowing my pc down, also while im here do u know anything about the DualDDR on these nforce boards would it be worth also getting another 512 meg of DDR400 to slap in the dual slot? I know it will help abit but worth another 70quid? :)

hey i found a forum for my vid card and mobos but next system im going to build im going to look at forums to make sure the board is great and stable without any problems, and that means i want an ABIT board with AMD Athalon 64 FX not the current one but the next one up that uses non ECC ram, but too bad Rambus wont be adopted, but one thing for sure that Rambus ram is fast now they have quad channel rambus.

and i think the AGP Slot should stay the Graphics Bus, PCI Express would be great for the next gen 24 BIT soundcards.

Hey, FUBAR, your low FPS is not strange on Quake 3... those bench marks for quake 3 are on low detail and are using the game Quake 3. When you start to play games using its engine, the graphics are becoming too much for the engine, and you start to suffer FPS wise, especially since you have everything on the highest detail. Back off the detail a little and you'll get 100 FPS for sure. I have a Geforce FX 5600 Ultra and when I play MOHAA I get between 30-80 FPS with relatively high detail. So - do the same with your 9700, much better FPS will follow.

what i mean is that AGP should stay the Bus for Graphics considering it doesnt share with PCI.

do what ever u like, that board sounds good, but if u have any problems try doing a BIOS upgrade like maybe to latest or second latest or ask questions about the ATI radeon 9700 and that ASUS board if they will work or not., Latest drivers for mobo and latest driver for Ati card

I would guess not since there are versions 1006 and 1007. I heard that there is also a 1008 but for a newer version of the board.
Atleast not entirely. 1005 is the version I have. So I would have to say, "No."

sup guys.....check out the bios savior from i.o.s.s.

I think they carry it at pcmods.com
with it you can switch between two bios chips, program one from another, use one for overclocking and one for stability settings, or simply use one for backup.
