Motherboard Gigabyte : GA-K8N51GMF9-RH


Hi,

Sorry, I don't speak/write good english.

I have a good offer for a computer with this motherboard. I found on mandriva database that the compatibility of the GA-K8N51GMF is certified. I made researches on different harware databases but I found nothing about the compatibility of the GA-K8N51GMF9-RH. And they are quite different.

It is difficult for me to understand what Gigabyte wrote about GA-K8N51GMF and about GA-K8N51GMF9-RH

Has somebody any information about this motherboard ?

Thank you very much

Both boards are for AMD processors, but the main difference between the two is that one uses socket 754 (obsolete) and the other uses socket 939 (nearly obsolete).

I use a GigaByte GA-M55plus-S3G socket AM2 motherboard. With this board and the newer socket, you'll more easily upgrade to more modern processors in the future, should you choose to do so.

I run Ubuntu 6.06, Debian Etch, Fedora Core 6, OpenSuSE 10.1, and Slackware 11 on this system with no hardware compatibility issues at all.

Luck!

That mobo is not that expensive. However, the DDR2 800 RAM can be pricey.

Froogle search

Best of luck to you!

Hi VTEL57,

I was not awake (very) early this morning. In between I discovered a paper on my desk I wrote two days ago :

GA-M55plus-S3G 78 (=100$) best price in Paris !
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 1.8Ghz 70
Kingmax Pc4200 512Mo DDR2 40 (bad quality ? Other brands are more expensive : kingston = 56)

And the shop where I asked for this computer offered me a machine with GA-K8N51GMF9-RH... Funny.

Definitly I will choose the GA-M55plus-S3G even if, at the end, the computer will be more expensive (+65). But prices in Paris seem double than in Tampa...

Have a good day !

Search online, mon ami. You can find some very inexpensive prices for that board. Of course, you'll have to buy from a vendor willing to ship to France.

Luck!
