    I'm kind of out of the loop, and need help on a good, but affordable motherboard that's a good overclocker.
    I'm already getting the X2 3800+, and like 2GB of DDR2.
    Still considering whether the 7800GTX is worth the extra money over 7800GT.
    So, what's a good motherboard to go with that processor?

    DDR2 + X2 AMD = no go, wait for the M2 platform if you want DDR2.

    Look into DFI NF4 Ultra-D. If you wnat SLi than the DFI NF4 SLi-DR. Both are DDR.

    out of the loop is true
    no M2 yet
    I like asus motherboards ie. ASUS A8N-E Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra
    unless you want SLI




    DDR2 isn't even any better then DDR YET

    Yeah, I don't want SLI. And thanks for the heads-up about DDR2.
    I'll just have to get fast DDr instead.

    I second the nf4 ultra-d, just built a comp with that, 2gigs ram, 7800gtx. runs like a raped ape, battlefield with everything maxed at 1600x1200 kicks ass.
