nForce 2 Socket A Motherboard Round-up

Subject: Motherboards
Manufacturer: General


When AMD introduced the Socket A form factor years ago, I don't think they ever dreamed it would be as popular and successful as it is today. But with 64-bit processors, new bus technology, and faster memory specs just around the corner, we are seeing Socket A lose popularity in favour for the latest and greatest. What this means for the budget-minded consumer is that there are some great deals to be had on some really amazing Athlon XP motherboards.

Today we are going to look at four different nVIDIA nForce 2 Ultra400 based products and even though all four use the same base chipset, each board has it own talents and quirks. Read on and find out which board fits your criteria.

Great MB. It's been running flawless for 12 years.
Now I'm confronted with 5 "pregnant" Elkos in the vicinity of the CPU. Hope I can find someone, who's able to replace them.
Good review, too.
Thanx :-)
