This would depend on what you are looking for in the end result. All out performance, economy or somewhere in between. Post your "wish-list" and we could get a better indication as to which direction to point you.

Good Luck!

I've had good experiences with the Asus A7M266, but others may disagree. I have built 3 systems with it and they all are money.

When I was getting a new board, I looked for 1) DDR and 2) AMD 761 chipset due to reviews I'd read.

I was down to the Abit KG-7, Gigabyte GA-7DXR, Biostar M7MIA, Asus A7M and went with the A7M because it was the first one I could find.

If I got another board right now, I'd go with the Abit I think.

I'd definitely go with DDR, but I'd move to the VIA KT266A chipset as being the best at the moment. I haven't heard that that there's a lot of difference between the boards right now, so any of them should do pretty well.
