MicroATX can be both attractive and practical, but can it make for a powerful gaming rig? I decided to take a look at this nForce 4 SLI motherboard from eVGA (eVGA 131-K8-NF44) to put this theory to the test.
This board is Socket 939, which has recently been replaced by Socket AM2. It might seem a little pointless to be considering this, but if you have a Socket 939 chip already on an AGP motherboard, then a PCI Express motherboard would be a good upgrade to increase gaming performance, and wouldn’t involve throwing the rest of your system away. After all, that low latency 400MHz DDR memory wasn’t cheap, was it?
…For those of you looking to upgrade an existing Socket 939 machine, or if you don’t want to get rid of that expensive DDR memory in your Socket A machine – then this board is definitely worth considering.
