Budget Nforce Ultra or ASrock AGP/PCI-e hybrid.

So I am stuck on which what to get. Both boards are known to reach DFI HTT areas, and peform well, and all that jazz. I am just unsure of both companies quailty. They seem to get great reviews though.

If anybody has some other input great, but my budget is $100.

i would go with the chaintec board, seeing as you have a pcie card you really dont need the agp slot, it is also faster. the other one also has a noise problem!

omg, ok first of all, consult pricewatch before going to the expensive sites. www.pricewatch.com both of those boards are low end, and wont serve you well, the capacitor life iv seen with those brands can be low. from what iv tested anyway. ASUS uses great components, and are a great board maker. got PCI-E. since no more video cards will be made for AGP, probally ever again. the x850 xt pe will remain the agp god. furthermore, here is a better board. http://www.ajump.com/ajump/product.asp?pf%5Fid=0740159&dept%5Fid=5123 ULi used to make some really crap chipsets back in the day, i dont know how they are now. nforce4 combined chipsets perform a little better in the benchmarks against the ULi's.

I know Asus is a better brand, but their cheapest Nforce 4 board is $30 more. And they don't clock as high as either board. ;) ASrock is made by ASUS.

That is why I made this thread, because I am unsure of which one to get. The ASrock is interesting because it has the option to use M2 with a the use of a daugtherboard.
