Motherboard for socket A
I need a Motherboard for a Socket A Athlon XP 2600 or 2800 but needs to be compatible up to Athlon XP 3200 for later upgrades
I was thinking about an Asus but feel free to suggest other brand
Also what type of chipset is better VIA, AMD, ALi, nVidia, or SiS
Thanx for ur time

asus is never a bad choice. as far as the chipset, i really like the nvidia. wasnt really expecting much but it has great bench marks. stable and very fast on games. i was to chicken to try nvidia on my own stuff but bought one for my dad's computer and wish i had gone that way instead of via. i have had alot of trouble with some games being glitchy. the last few sis i have worked on have been a dissapointment. ali is hard to find on the board specs i usually need. mainly depends on what video card you are going to use also. sis,ali,and intel work great with radeon. nvidia does good with via, nvidia,intel,and sis. (atleast in my experience) had some problems using a radeon card on via and nvidia chiset boards.
She showed me her software so i pulled out my python.
