I have an orphan Athlon XP 2400+ 266 FSB cpu that I need a motherboard for. I'm going to be looking in the fs/ft section and it's been so long now, that I don't know what to look for.

What should I look for in a top end motherboard for the time?

TIA,

Sal

Just get something current - all FSB400 mainboards are also capable of slower speeds. Budget recommendation: The PC-Chips M848 has done me a good job of replacing every socket-A mainboard that I needed to replace so far.

So, I can use something like an Asus A7n8x Deluxe with this cpu? I can pick one up for about $60 used. That's about the only board that I remember from the time. Asus sold the crap out of it.

How does this PC Chips board stack up against something like the Asus that I mentioned? Where would I get it? I can't seem to find someone that carries it.
