    I have been out of the computer loop for a while and I need to retire my Athlon 750Mhz for something in the 1.7 Ghz + range . I am looking to spend around $150.oo for a Motherboard and CPU combo.

    Reguirements:

    4 PCI slots
    AGP
    USB
    Firewire
    Onboard Sound
    Onboard Lan 10/10000

    Motherboard has to be :

    Epox
    Abit
    Via
    Asus
    Gigabyte
    Soyo

    And depending on which motherboard to get I am not sure on what kind of memory they use now so please specify???

    I would prefer Amd but I have not been in the loop on how the wars have been brewing. I guess it depends on price really for performance...

    I've bought a couple of ABIT IS7s recently for $110 at
    Newegg.com and they are great boards with tons of
    features at a great price. Also they had the boxed 1.7
    GHz Celeron for $55 as well.
    It's a dual channel board, so make sure to get two
    sticks of DDR RAM as well.
