Need New Mobo info

Just ran a problem with an HP 7950 on another post.
Need a mobo to replace this:

I'll use the same AMD K7 if I can get a cheap board.

How about this? Just opinion, please. This is not for me and is used in an Office envirenment. Nothing heavy.

Hi Pete, if the HP board is the one from that PC, the one at Tiger Direct will not work with the memory, the HP board calls for a FSB (Front Side Bus) to be 200/266 MHz and uses  PC 133 SDRAM

The Memory for the board at TigerDirect has specs for:
DDR200 (PC1600)
DDR266 (PC2100)
DDR333 (PC2700)

RAM

=============================

It's going to be a little difficult to find a new ASUS board with PC 133 SD RAM.  There are two on eBay made for the HP Pavillion:

Thanks, Wes
I put a bid right in on one of the boards.
Should get it.
And thanks for pointing out the memory. This one's a freebie on me and I hate shelling out anymore.
Put $50 on the second seller.

(And I'm allowed to say thanks if you remember an old post.)

No problem Pete...must have been a older post, I haven't signed my given name in awhile  :)  You mean the "Thanks" thread???

I know what you mean about spending your on money on someone else's computer...I'm guilty as well.  After all the work you've done, sure hope this is the key.

Oh, btw-when you get the board, use the battery from the other motherboard, unless you have a way to test it.  At any rate they are the cheap...wouldn't want to lose your CMOS settings the first time you shut down...LOL.

Yes, I'm the one who started the "Thanks" thread so I make sure I say my "Thank you's" properly.
As in this case.
"THANKS"
