I found this motherboard "DFI LANPARTY NFII ULTRA B Socket A" for 140$US see here and was wondering if it was a good buy? I like this board for its layout. The AGP slot leaves alot of space between it and the PCI slot. Also has 4 USB ports and tilted IDE connectors. Everything seem well spaced expect for those resistor infrom of the cpu socket but I can deal with that Aslo as for overclocking capabilities. I saw from the hardocp site which made a review on it said it had plenty of nice BIOS features etc. Also Im looking in getting a cpu and im stuck between 2 CPU. I would like to get other people opinion to get me decided on which is better AMD XP-2600+ 2.133G 333MHZ 256K L2 CPU OEM for 102$ or AMD Athlon XP-2500 1.833GHz 512K 333MHz CPU OEM for 100$ As you can see its not a price issue The only thing that is keeping me from making a disicion is the fact that the xp2600 is only 256k while the 2500 is 512k I would assume i could possibly overlock the 2500 to equal or maybe even surpass the 2600 but i would have to get this from a experience overclockers to know which is a better buy Thx for those who can answer!
