So basically.... an nForce2 board. The abit or asus boards have what you want.

[Alienware M15x]
| i7 940XM 3.2GHz - 4GHz - 6970m 710/1000 1.0v |
| 16GB DDR3-1333 - Travelstar 7K1000 - 3x Asus PA238Q |

The coin is still turning.

the big three are asus, abit, or epox. it is really preference and price as to which one to choose from. i believe people are getting the best consistant OC from abit at this point.

the abit board is the best OC'er. can be run over 200FSB right out of the box. well the REV 2.0 board can.

get it at last i heard it was $112 guaranteed REV 2.0.

if that's to much get the Epox 8RDA. it's like $80 and has everything you asked for. it's also very stable but needs some mods to take a 200+FSB stable. if you want the best OC get the abit. after you spend everything to get the Epox ready for 200+ FSB you coulda paid for the abit.

crap MSI board
not worth OCing with this board.

The ASUS A7N8X-DLX is nice if you're not worried about price. I got mine at for 140, but they're cheaper now. Just matters what you need.

i have the epox and nf7-s and i like both my boards. My epox didn't need any mods to hit 200 fsb. The nf7-s kicks butt and i have hit 220 fsb. I have worked on the a7n8x dlx(old version) and it wasn't able to run stable at 200 fsb. Hope that helps ya out.

Get a KT600 (kt400b) if you don't want NF2. Or KT400A but then you don't get guarenteed 200 mhz support (you get the dividers for 200 mhz though).
