Leadtek K7N420-DA nForce Motherboard Review - Specifications

But nVidia hasn't given up on the idea of a chipset for AMD processors with decent built-in graphics. Come join Cameron "Sov" Johnson as he takes a look at the Leadtek K7N420-DA Motherboard. It is based on the newest 420D nForce chipset and again has onboard graphics. But can they pull themselves out of the hole that they dug last time around? Let's find out!
