I'm currently using a ECS K5S7A Pro (latest honey bios upgrade)
AMD XP 2000 T-bird (A 6-8-0)
Muskin basic PC2700 memory, two 256MB sticks.
I can overclock a little to 137/137mhz, anything more and the system
sometimes locks up.
I want to replace my current motherboard to something that will allow
my memory to run at 166mhz, but still allow my current processor to run
(133mhz bus speed).
I will replace the CPU in the future with something with a 166mhz bus speed.

I'm looking for a low cost motherboard, something that does a little
overclocking.
(Maybe a K7VTA ?)
So what motherboard can people recommend ?

Take a look at Asrock boards. Cheap with a good reputation and a subsidiary
of Asus. More overclocking abilities than ECS boards.
