Motherboard with RAID support for Athlon XP 1800+

Hi there
I've an athlon xp 1800+ cpu that I was using with my GigaByte motherboard which also had a raid controller.

Could you please suggest a motherboard that would support my CPU with RAID support that I can get 2nd hand for a cheap price?

The ASUS A7N8X comes with a RAID option on some models.  It is a very stable board and does IDE RAID, and is the best and last of the IDE RAID generation -- get one before they all go.
Look on EBay for ASUS A7N8X RAID (check search descriptions) and you see several for cheap prices. see --

Unfortunately there is some CD ROM dip-head crowding the items for sale, but look beyond that and you will see some bargains.  Make sure you buy a board that is working, and read the description to see that it has the RAID option actually PRESENT (not just an option).  These are very long life boards.

The other of that generation is the ABIT, and search again for ABIT RAID XP -- see what you find.  The ABIT are not quite as durable as the ASUS, but they were the first to come out with RAID on the ABIT KT7A RAID over 5 years ago, and they are still working today.  But those are 133 bus boards, you want a 266 or 333 bus board, for sure.
