I'm looking forward to playing 2003/2004 games that'll certainly demand computing power. Therefore, I am looking for a good, reliable and cheap mb that'll have the following specs:

pc2700 ddr memory
athlon xp 2200 / FSB 333
usb 2.0
agp 8x
ata 133

Targets: asus a7v333 and a7v333x.

1. Is agp pro = agp 8x?
2. What harwdware devices take advantage of usb 2.0? webcams?
3. Is there a revision of Athlon XP 2200 taht operates at fsb 333?
4. I have a 40gb 7200rpm HD. Will it be faster on ata133
than on ata100?

Thank you in advance for your comments.

1.) No, read the first post in this forum, titled "...FAQ..."
2.) Not webcams yet, things like external hard drives and some CDRW or DVD drives
3.) Not that I know of
4.) No

I would suggest getting a sub-$100 nForce2 board, I think MSI and Epox have them.
