I don't have one actually, but if you are in search for one, the Asus K8V Deluxe gets some good reviews! Lot's of options too.

MSI usually does a good job of keeping the layout simple and making the bios oc'able.

TO ALL OF YOU: i would just hold tight for 2 more mths until socket 939 comes out and then buy. All the sites i read recomend this and the new chipsets that have been introduced (nforce3 250gb, via 800 pro) are designed for the new socket. save your $$ now and get the benifits soon.

@infinitevalence

You are right, waiting is the thing to do at this moment, with the upcoming 939 socket. However, prices are likely to be high with a new introduction. So it will take another few months before they become affordable and/or production volumes are high enough to reach your local dealer.

Genuine: very true, if people are hurting for $$ or need an immidate upgrade the go for it, but if your planing a big upgrade hold out.

I have an AMD64-3400 that I enjoy with a Gigabyte k8vnxp.

The board is rock solid stable, and I would recommend it to anyone and defend the lack of a agp/pci lock.

That's the one I have Alister. I knew of the coming 939 platform with dual channel support. You have a trade off though, the current 754's offer 1 meg l2 cache with some of the processors.

Some programs will benifit from this cache as much as higher memory bandwidth.

I wasn't happy waiting for 939, although I could have. What made up my mind was the acceptance of the fact that I would not die if the board wasn't a big overclocker, and that even with the 754-3400... the system would have longlegs. By that I mean that it would last me into the future with satisfactory performance for at least 2-3 years.
