Hey, I bought a alhlon 1800 xp a while ago with a really cheap motherboard (pcchips-all in one) I have SDRAM there, It does weird stuff ( random resets while trying to access HD ), its not a software problem. I  tried  FreeBSD and NT5 with the same results. I tested the memory and cpu on another mb everything works fine, anyway to the main point of my question. Im looking for some good motheboard for 1800 xp althon that would take 133mhz sdram, I dont need any all in ones and so on.

Thanks
Tom

Does the board have to be new?   I am really having a hard time finding a new one.   I could find one on ebay for you if it is ok to get a used one.

Well, some people mix SDRAM classification with DDR, so I guess we need to know for sure.

And I sure am tired, after solving a problem all day on the trading floor - chalk this one up to mental fatigue.  Hopefully, I'll be better in morning, after I had some coffee ;-)

Nah, Im not gonna upgrade. This box is just for my home, where I dont use ANYTHING almost, just thebat/opera and I dont really want to spend any money for a home computer... I have a decent computer at work where I do all my stuff and I dont use the one at home. I think im gonna go for the ASUS one, I had really good experience with asus hardware.
