Howdy fellas!

The time to replace my ageing XP2400+ system has finally come! After some serious considerations, I've decided to go for a Athlon 64 3200, socket 939 system. Now all I have to do is pick a motherboard, and the two finalists are:

MSI K8N NEO2 Platinum-54G S939 nForce3 250Ultra,SATA,GbLAN,ATX,Dual-DDR

and

MSI K8T NEO2 FIR S939 K8T800PRO,SATA,GbLAN,ATX,Raid,Dual.CH

Major difference between the two is obviously the chipset they use, K8N has an nForce3 and K8T has a K8T800Pro chipset.
K8N is slightly more expensive, but it appears to be more feature rich. Of course, my only concern is the performance.

So which is faster/better: nForce3 or K8T800Pro?

Thanks!

Well, no comments and advices? It's OK, I've made up my mind anyway, and the winner is the nForce3 powered board.
Add to that 1Gb ram, Audigy 2, 120Gb HD, R9800Pro (to be replaced by a GF6800GT in a while) from my current system, and I'm ready for BoB. I hope http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
