    I would look at the ECS K7S5A. It has the sis735 chipset, supports both sdram & DDR and with the availible newer bios the fsb can reach 150. It cost around $55 us and are readily availible. Its a good board to get your feet wet with OCing.

    Edit this board only has 2 sdram slots so if you dont have 512 sticks you will be limited on the amount of memory you can run.

    Buy a new Proc, Mobo, and DDR RAM.
    I suggest Abit Epox or Asus. I have experience with all and they are each very good in different respects. I dont know about ECS or Elite or FIC or Soltek, but that doesn't mean i think negatively about them. Buy DDR2100 or 2400. You'll prolly put out between 150 and 250 bucks depending. (american i mean)

    When you have all that. Start focusing on bringin that Duron 800 and 1gig SDRAM back into another box. Use it as a secondary, or sell it to an idiot, just dont let it sit.

    What Power Supply wattage do you have?
