I'm thinking about rebuilding a system from scratch. Trouble is, i don't know which motherboard to go for? I have a MSI at the moment and this has worked fine for 4 years. Trouble is, new one are coming out the whole time and i want one that will obviously last a few years!!
Ok lahorie, you obviously don't stay logged on to this site so this could take a while like this.
So here's my suggestion; for AMD Athlon XP processor it's got to be A7N8X-E/DELUXE click here this is by far the best in that price range (imho) other people will have their favourites but that would be my first choice.
For the Processor (CPU) it's got to be Athlon Xp 3200+ 2.2Ghz 512Kb from click here . I will admit that it's a bit pricey but that's the best for that m/b. There are a few other CPU's that will fit in nicely and for good performance you really don't need to spend more than £80 but that's your choice.
Unfortunately I am not a fan of Intel stuff so I can't offer any advice there but I'm sure someone else on this site will help if you ask.
