April 18, 2006


If you are looking for bragging rights with a top of the line set up, the Biostar VIA K8M800/ AMD Athlon 64 3000+ from is probably not for you. However if you are looking for a reasonably priced 64-bit upgrade from an existing 32-bit system, this combination may be exactly what you are looking for.

The combination of the Biostar K8M800 motherboard with the AMD Athlon 64 3000+ processor should provide a substantial performance boost over an existing 32-bit system and save you plenty of money with onboard 6 channel audio, 10/100 LAN, and all be it very under powered video with the option of carrying over an AGP video card.

Granted, socket 754 may not be the wave of the future and the motherboard has some other limitations such as only three audio ports and limited BIOS options. This combination was meant to offer high performance on a budget, and in my opinion it has found a very comfortable middle ground. It may be lacking some bells and whistles, but it offers a substantial amount of 64-bit performance at a very reasonable price. has this combination for a normal list price of $164.50, but they have it on sale regularly for $157.00. Due to the outstanding overall performance and a price around $160 from the, I give the Biostar VIA K8M800 / AMD X64 3000+ combination a final score of 4 out of 5 stars. The bang for the buck this combo offers earns it the distinction of being a "Good Value".

Final Rating (4 out of 5 stars):


Great value
Runs cool with low speed, low noise fan
Onboard sound, LAN, and video, with option to use AGP video card


No SATA cables included
Would benefit from more audio ports

Special thanks to for providing the Athlon 64 3000+ CPU/Motherboard Combo to for review!
