    Most times I just go to the local comp markets/fairs and get a 2nd hand one which usually just has a quicker CPU attached to it. PII 350-400's are dirt cheap here on mobo's. ;)

    Well, I might SELL hers at such a market, but I'm not sure it's worth putting MORE money into.....
    Besides, didn't you get the hint I NEED to justify a new Mobo for me??? Sheesh...:rolleyes2

    Speaking of mobos...Hey Bubba...how you like that board? I'd have pretty much the same system as you with the Mobo/CPU upgrade I was talkin about...

    OK, OK.....enough arm-twisting Bubba. :p
    Bit the bullet and ordered the A7N8X Deluxe...it should be here by Monday :D :thumb:
    Oh, and Wiggo? My g/f said she'll buy my board, CPU, etc. once I upgrade mine....problem SOLVED! :)
    I'd just like to thank you guys for all the help. Obviously, I went into this PC building exercise without a whole lot of information. It shames me to admit that for what I paid for a board AND soundcard, I could've had the Asus board in the first place. I am pleased with my machine as it is, but the new board will help that feeling last a LOT longer, and gives me a lot more headroom to upgrade and keep current. I'd like to run the hottest RAM I can, and the Dual-Channel DDR this new board supports really seems to make a difference, according to reviews. Any idea whether this board will handle PC3500? PC3700? I still want a new processor, at least 333MHz FSB, and the 2600+ seems to be the best choice. Also, the Asus supports AGP 8x....should I go for the ATI 9700 Pro, or wait for the GeForce FX to come out?
    :cheers:

    as it is, the board will support up to DDR400 (PC3200 ?), Corsair memory will probably be the best for you but also the most expensive...it will also handle cpu's above the 2600+...as far as the ATI 9700 Pro...it is supposed to have a price drop soon if it hasn't already...so it'll be cheaper than the GFX, but from what I've read, it will out perform the ATI card...at least if you get the 5800 Ultra version, but it'll run you almost $400 for it

    Wait for the FX as the nForce2 could have some funny effects when teamed with an ATi card (no I don't think that nVIDIA has done this on purpose). ;)

    Get 2 sticks of Corsair XMS3500 and really give that FSB a :hammer:

    Also if ya have the right BIOS it doesn't matter whether ya get a 266DDR or 333DDR Thoroughbred CPU as the point is mute with this mobo. I'm waitin' till next month for my XP2600+ as price cuts are due w/ Bartons release in a few weeks. :devil win
