Help, need advice on AMD gaming rig

    A friend has asked my advice on a from-scratch gaming rig.
    I'm strictly an Intel guy, so I need advice as to
    mobo, chipset I should look at (AMD). Specifically, what are the
    pros/cons of various socket types and chipsets. Also, he wants
    integrated giga bit LAN and sound. A starting point seems to be
    a 64 bit Athlon 3400+, but nothing is set in stone.
    Thanks for any inputs.

    You're on the right track The A64 is the best when it comes to gaming, and
    most other things too.
    For gigsbit lan, you probably want to look at an NF3-giga chipset with
    built in gigabit lan. The 754 is the cheap route. You'll probably pay
    close to double for 939 cpu's, for about a 15% gain.
