Im sad to say this but i need the absolute cheapest socket a mobo. it has to have a few things

1-2 dimm slots
2-3 pci slots

thats all, im VERY sorry to say this but it need not have any overclocking potentail, i am VERY strapped for cash and i figure why just have this duron 650 sitting here when it can at least be Folding some proteins? So cheapest amd socket a mobo, i would like to buy new w/ warentee or else i would have gone to classifids. Thanks all, hope to be folding with this bad boy soon.

btw-I'll buy the Epox later when ive got money, dont think ive gone soft.

Thanks guys i'll decide which one later on, thats about the price im looking for. Jim dont worry once i get the funds i'll buy a good mobo, or by the time i get the money i bet the dual socket a's will be out. Dual duron 650's would fold a lot of protiens. This mobo is just to get started.

I highly reccomend going with an ECS board over the PCCHIPS one ,I have had much better luck with them ,and they are about the same price

It depends who makes the motherboard... I'm pretty sure the warranty on Asus motherboards are still valid after they are sold. They don't require proof of purchase or anything, just the motherboard serial, so unless the board was previously RMA'd, I'm sure you could still send it in for warranty. Anyway, that's a total aside...
