    Hi, I was just given a PIII 450 cpu, and was wondering what mobo would be good for surfing, MS Office, light gaming (can you tell it is for the wife?) :laugh: Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanx

    Try and look for a Intel 440BX based board, since they are old they may be hard to find. If not a board based on the Intel 815E would be the go, or 815EP if you want onboard graphics.

    A slot 1 i815 may also be very to find since only a couple were ever produced....i440BX is your best bet, even though it only supports 2xAGP.
    I've been happy with my 3 yr. old Epox BX3...especially since i took out the secc PIII 500 & replace it with a Celeron900/slotket running at 1200MHz

    I used to run Aopen AX6BC's which were great stable BX boards.

    I'm fairly certain the 815 came in socket 370 form as well?

    It certainly does Tweak so long as the 512MB memory limit is ok and the PIII ain't a slot 1 job though there are some boards around that will take either. :smokin:

    Don't you mean slot 1? I know the early i820's came in slot 1 (like Asus P3C) but I dunno about the i815, they must have been very scarce!

    There were socket 370 815 boards, I just remembered I had an Epox board a couple years ago.

    sorry I guess I wasn't clear in my earlier post

    A PIII450 Katmai would have to be a secc - and since very, very few slot 1 i815 boards were ever made, a slot 1 i440BX board would be his best bet.

    I've had a couple of PIII450's run at 600MHz w/o increasing the Vcore, so you may be able to squeeze out a little more.
