okay, i am guessing this might be a repeat thread, but what would people suggest for a good oc'ing mobo running a p4 northwood? i need the 533 fsb support for a p4 (most do now anyway) and i wouldn't mind an intel chipset, but whatever offers the most options (locking the pci and agp bus speeds, memory config, fsb adjustment, etc) i have some cash to spend on another upgrade and i would love a nice board... makes no difference on the memory but i would like it if it happened to be ddr 2100 compatible... no rdram cause i don't have that much cash :) would 512 mb ddr high speed ddr perform better than 1024 mb ddr 2100? just curious...

Abit BE-7 or Asus P4PE, in that order. The latest Intel chipset (845PE), which has support for PC2700, 533 FSB, Hyperthreading, AGP/PCI lock, and IMHO from the two best motherboard manufacturers :)
