    I am planning for AMD Athlon 64 (Socket 939) and would like to know which motherboard will be suitable for my expected specifications.

    I wish to get the motherboard (Socket 939) that enables the below specs:

    MUST BE COMPATIBLE with my Tascam US-122 (Anyone with experience?)
    Supports HyperTransport Technology
    Enables 2000MHz of Front Side Bus (Most of MSI boards supports up to only 1000MHz of FSB)
    Supports Dual Channel Memory DDR3200/400MHz (Up to 4GB)

    I am not very sure about the graphic spec whether it should go AGP or PIC Express as I have read some threads pointing out that PCI Express graphic config got problems with the audio.

    Anyone pls reinforce my understanding and point me out the suitable motherboard?

    Try the Gigabyte K8NS Ultra, great mobo. It's what I'm currently using. Avoid PCI Express, at least with AMD. Whatever AMD mobo you choose get the NF3 chipset and you'll be fine.

    Thanks bro. How about nVIDIA NForce4 chipset and its compatibility? Any idea about that?
