the CUV4X was a very popular board in it's day for a 440BX-based mobo-the TUV4X is the same thing with Tualatin support, so it should perform pretty much exactly the same.

The TUSL2-C is a good board also, it uses a newer chipset than the TUV4X. If I had to pick, I would use the TUSL2-C paired with a Tualatin CPU. For both boards, with the right CPU and add-in cards 150+ FSB is entirely possible.

IF you get one of these boards, be sure to upgrade that 733 to a Tualatin CPU, they are quite a bit faster than normal P3 CPUs- cheaper, too, and they overclock like crazy!:)

paired with a fast, well-overclocked Tualatin CPU, either of those boards will beat the stuffing out of a P4 in every area except memory bandwidth.

Plus P4 CPUS and mobos are super expensive....

sorry i just am not much of a fan of the P4, it's not BAD but other setups are lots cheaper and almost as good or better in every respect.
