    I've just bought the NF7-S, and it is superb.
    Just a little bit tight for space with a big cooler though.

    I'm looking to buy a new motherboard. Thinking of getting an Athlon XP2500+
    Barton.

    I would like:
    USB2 (Plenty six would be nice)
    SATA (a bit of future proofing)
    Firewire
    Built in LAN
    4+ PCI slots

    Games are not important to me, stability is. It will be used with a bog
    standard Nvidea MX440 video card, and I will also be buying 512Mb RAM to go
    with it.

    Any help appreciated.

  4. So does the Asus A7N8X deluxe. So, infact, do most of the motherboards
    built round the nForce2 chipset. Note that for best performance with all
    these boards the memory ought be 2*256 (to use both channels).
