Soooo I wanna upgrade my lil Athlon 1200b / Asus A7V

I looked around the internet, and, well, didn't find anything that great besides 2 suggestions...

Ath 2600+ and Chaintech 7NJS Zenith (lots of feats I don't need) or MSI K7N2G (cheaper)
or
Intel P4 2667 and AOpen AX4PE Max or ASUS P4PE (altogether a bit more expensive as the athlon config, but I'm aiming for a silent system anyway, and I think it's easier for a intel system to be silent...)

So, what do you think - or got suggestions yourself?

Thanks in advance

* The chaintech zenith doesn't feature the nVidia APU (Excellent Audio). I would choose <A HREF="http://www.excaliberpc.com/product_info.php?products_id..." target="_new">Abit NF7-S Revision 2.0</A>.

* For Heatsink+Fan, I would choose Cooler Master HAC-V81 - cool and quiet.

* For nForce2 motherboards, like NF7-S, use at least two memory modules in order to enable Dual DDR - increases memory bandwidth and decreases latency.
