Do you have all of the other parts to build two systems? If you don't, don't spend the money on obsolete platforms. Sell the CPUs (3200+ Bartons still fetch a hefty sum) and get into a more up-to-date platform. This is especially true considering video cards (AGP vs. PCI-e). You may be able to sell one of the CPUs and use that money to purchase a CPU and MB combo for about the same amount!
Yeah I got most of the stuff for them, I am going to use em for network storage, and other OS's (Ubuntu Linux, Win2k3 Server). I am making a small home Hardware/OS/Network Lab for my CIS classes in school.
The Asus A7N8X Deluxe was an excellent board. However, the Abit NF7-S V2.0 had superior voltage settings and selection compared to the Asus board, which gave it the edge when overclocking. The Asus was a good overclocker, but not as successful as the NF7-S V2.0. The Abit board was also one of the brainchilds of the one and only Oscar Wu. The same guy who went on to DFI to create the best S939 boards for overclocking.
On another note, the Epox 8RDA+. Another stellar overclocker like the Abit and Asus, but it was usually available at a better price which gave it an excellent price/performance ratio.
I finally got the GA-7N400 Pro2 Rev1.xx all together this weekend.
I am loving this board! It has no problem running in Dual Channel DDR400 mode (my A7N8X-X could not run in Dual Channel cause it could only use like 6 kinds of DDR400 to be in D.C. mode)
I love that it does PATA & SATA .. I can buy a WD Raptor now *weee*
The onboard sound is pretty good, it's better than the A7N8X-X's. Plus I can use the TOSLINK to my Yamaha TSS-1 5.1 amp! But its not DDL/DTS, so I have to switch it to Pro Logic mode.
The Antec Beige Tower is so heavy! Not sure what model or year it is, it only has green power LED and amber HDD LED, 4 CD/DVD bays, 2 FDD bays, 4 internal HDD trays, and a locking front door & side panel, no builtin front USB or Audio, no side panel windows. I think it's a VAR II SX1000 II Full Tower.
The PSU's fan is alil loud I might replace it with a Cooler Master SAF-B82-E1 80mm fan. I replaced all the Antec case fans with SAF-B82's.
