I am currently running an KT7A-R with Palomino 2100+. While it is a pretty\ngood rig it is starting to show its age in that I have to turn down the\nsliders on some games a lot more than I would like. With the Pal 2100+ this\nmotherboard is maxed out so......\n\nI have looked at the new 64 bit stuff but this technology seems a little too\n"new". Better to wait a year or so for the chipset and board makers to work\nout the bugs and for the software folks to produce something that knows what\n64 bit is and can take advantage of it.\n\nA combination of carefull research and mindless bias toward AMD and aginst\nIntell narrowed the choices down to two boards.\n\n1. NF7-S\n2. AN7\n\nThe NF7-S leads due to its better stability and overclocking ability\noutweighing the AN7's better "toys".\n\nSince the KT7A-R takes SD ram while the NF7-S needs DDR I am going to be\nbuying ram too. I would like to put a gig of ram in the next board but, from\nsome of what I read, that might get VERY expensive.\n\nI hear one of the problems with these motherboards is that they are VERY\nsensitive about what kind of ram they will accept. Many reports have these\nboards throwing up at the first sight of "generic" (read cheap) ram but\nrunning fine with "premium" (read expensive) ram. I was wondering about\nthe "in between" ram like Corsair Value Select. I know I cannot expect much\noverclocking with the Corsair Value Select but, overclocking asside, is it\ngood stable ram for the NF7-S?\n\nAnyone out there running 1 Gig of Corsair Value Select in an NF7-S?\n\nAny reports/advice appreciated.
