New Motherboard-Have to get =(

Hello,

I have to get a new motherboard.. I have a 8rda3+ and not sure if I should just get that or something that might have come out that is better for oc etc. I just wanted to get some input on what I might want to think about .I am running a 2600m Barton.

Thanks,
Zephr

I don't think theres much point unless you want to upgrade the cpu as well, stick with what you have until you can go to athlon 64 and socket 939

No post ?

Hello,

Well nevermind..I just went with the same thing I had. Did I do something wrong .I usually at least get a few post .I just decided that I know that board and will keep going with that until I upgrade to 64 bit.

Thanks,

Zephr

Hello Graham,

You were right the first time. I changed my post on you . When I posted the first time I was trying to bring my Mb to life. I was unable to do it. I was going to see if I should get another one . I got in touch with Epox and was still able to Rma it so should be great. Thanks for your help and input.
