    Me. Running the A8V Deluxe. Also played with the AV8 for a bit. If you want OCing, wait for the nF4U boards to hit the streets :) If you cant wait, u can get some nice OCs on the A8V and AV8 (2.2 --> 2.65 --> 2.91 ... im having some trouble past 2.87 but i think replacing my memory might fix that)

    i dont' think a decent (or, for that matter, real) board will ever be created with both agp and pci express capabilities. i'm preparing myself for a 64-bit build and have been searching for such a thing. as i have the 9600XT A-I-W and don't feel like letting a goodie like that go to waste, i'll settle for an agp-only board for a few more years.

    lol this thread came back from the dead. thanks for replying, i went with an amd 64 3500 socket 939,neo 2 platinum and am using my aiw 9600xt and it works good. games play awesome and if i overclock it to 2.5ghtz it games like and amd and encodes/decodes like intel. i agree i dont think there will be an agp/pci express board woth buying and i just got the neo 2 with my aiw and its all good. go 64 and u wont be unhappy but if u overclock and u get a winchester be aware that some of them will not oc too well some of the memory controllers just arent able to keep up but the new amd chips coming out right around the corner should be AWESOME. i bought my winchester in december-jan and it tops out at 2.6 unstable and 2.5 stable. i think if i would have went with a newcastle i would have been at 2.6 rock solid. the venice and sandiego cores r up next to bat and there supposed to be very good.

    Seeing as the thread has been resuscitated, figured I'd throw in my 2c. Put together a system about a year ago now with the 64bit, built it on a Shuttle SN85G4 barebones (looks goregeous, and makes transporting to LANs a piece of cake with the LCD I got to go with it) and threw an ATI 9800XT in there (!). Boy does that sucka go, its a true pocket rocket... Little did I know that ATI wasn't planning on releasing any 64bit drivers for a long time... So no chance of running anything decent on the Windows64 beta when I got it, and was an even longer wait till they released drivers for Linux... (grumble, its a nice card, but their customer service re driver release makes me doubt I'd ever get another ATI...) I don't really see the point in overclocking these days though, the small percentage gains and stability issues don't really make sense to me... You've still got an essentially obsolete piece of technology in about the same timeframe...
