    Best Budget Combination : PC Chips Motherboard (mATX, LMR) for £50 plus a duron 750 for £40 ish

    Best Power Combo - Latest Epox board (8KHA+ ?) and Athlon XP 1800


    or take the middle road and get say an KG7 lite and an athlon XP1500

    hmm, just realised the duron option wouldn't be much of an 'upgrade'

    Go with the XP1500 (cheaper than the 1800 by far) and get a nice KG7 or Epox board.

    If you are thinking of the KG7 then wait a couple of weeks for the launch of the KR7 which uses the via kt266a chipset with its greater support for unbuffered ddr, wider bandwidth etc.

    Yep definatly agree with thatr make sure you get an 266a board might cost you a bit moe than planned as youll have to buy ddr ram to.
