Can anyone reccomend a new motherboard for me to upgrade to? Im currently looking to upgrade from my p3-700, however cost is an issue, also i would ideally like to run a CPu at about the 2000 mark. I have searched out the ASRock K7VT2 as this will accept the old style RAM, however it is apparently quite fussy. Can anyone reccomend any other boards, bearing in mind the cost issue. Does anyone have any experience with this particular board? I have found a board,CPU and fan for £90, is this good value? Many thanks in advance, also will i need to change my case??

Have a read here, dont let the ram you have now limit the choice of motherboard you get.

The upgrade bundle i found was:
ASRock K7VT2 + XP2200 CPU + Fan for £90

No new memory as this motherboard takes SDRAM
