new mobo advise (mainly for 9700 pro graphics)

  pookie 08:49 03 Sep 2003


windows xp home, 2.4 athlon xp, 4.1 creative sound, ecs k7 s5a mobo with sis 735 agp chipset agp 4x, 768 mb pc2100 ddr ram and sapphire 9700pro graphics, psu 550W, fan to athlon 3000.

I fancy a new mobo as I want to increase to 3000 athlon in future, my 2.4 athlon is as high as my mobo will take. Can anyone recommended a mobo that is compatible with my setup ie will take my current pc2100 ram and 2.4 athlon xp. I don't need lan or onboard sound. I would just like to unclip ecs mobo and install new one and plug all back in.

In forums I've read that 9700pro isn't geat in some mobo/chipsets. Can anyone with a 9700pro recommend a mobo that hasn't given them any problems?

Many thanks
