    Socket 462 is harder to find, but still available. Check out the PriceWatch link below (filtered by MB + 462)...
  2. Hi richman61 and welcome to Tom's forum.

    Yeah, we need more info. Do you want a new build? or just replace the mobo.
  3. Hello Tom's members and thank you for the reply!

    I am replacing the mobo, it just went out on me.
  4. An advice, build a new budget rig is more cheap that find a "new" mobo for your current rig.
  5. Maybe. The first MB found at the link above is $20 with many others at $35. If $20 fits the need...
  6. #2 on the list would work but the board dimentions are too short. Not sure is I can get away with the 9.5 x 9.5 board #2 has. I probably can hit the top and middle mounts but not the bottom ones due my board is about 11.5 x 9.5. It has two extra pci sockets which extend the board length/height.

    For $35 it maybe worth a shot. If I don't have to worry abou thitting the bottom mounts. :pt1cable:

    My wife uses it for goofing around on and the "old" printer use the parallel connection.
  7. for this board

    CPU: AMD Socket A Athlon XP Processors
    Thoroughbred/ Barton Core Support
    Chipset: NVIDIA GeForce 6100
    Front Side Bus: 333/266 MHz
    Memory: 2 x DIMM, Max. 2 GB, DDR pc2100 pc2700 or pc 3200 Memory
    Dual Channel memory architecture
    Note: Dual-channel PC3200 (DDR400) mode requires AGP graphics card
    Expansion Slots 3 x PCI
    1 x AGP 8x (1.5V only)

    how is the FSB determined becaused it lists as 333/266?
  8. Err.... It has been a while for 462! Jumpers on the MB is what I am thinking. Not sure there was auto detection for that platform.
  9. Ok on the FSB, thank you.
  10. I went ahead and purchased this.

    Thank you everyone for your help.
  11. I received an email wondering if I found an answer to my question...

    Well yes I did. I found a Mobo at the reference site. It was a not new because it did not come in the original OEM box nor was there a CD with drivers. I was in the middle of installing it and holidays came up and my company shipped me out to Mexico for a short while.

    I'll get back at this next week and reply back. I was having an issue installing the bios. Need to use a floppy, for some reason the CD I burned is not working.

  12. well got it to work... ide cable wsn't the bios not installing.

    all good = close, and thx
