Best MOBO / Processor combo?

Recommended Posts

I bought my PC in '06 and it has the Asus A8N-SLI Premium motherboard

and it has the AMD Socket 939 Athlon 64FX/Athlon 64 processor.


It performs decently, but I'm considering upgrading to a more powerful processor and motherboard that can handle more power. I'm currently running XP Pro, but eventually I'll be upgrading to Vista or even the new Windows 7 when it comes out.


So, I'd like to have a motherboard / processor combination that can handle

having at least 8gigs of RAM, 1200+ front side bus, and large cache.


Anyone have suggestions for high end motherboard / processor combos to look at? And, is Intel now the king for fastest processors?
