    Choose another motherboard like the Asus A7N8X or Gigabyte GA-7N400-L and get the AMD Athlon XP 2500+ Retail boxed version.

    The CPU is $80 & the mobos ~$100 that VB reco'd. The CPU Ihave is great & ASUS if not the best is rt up there. Much better quality than the pos mobo in that combo.

    just wanna add, dont buy ECS either...

    gigabyte, asus, and abit are good. there are a few other good ones too, but stay away from the cheap ones like ecs and pc chips.
