Hey everyone,

Thanks to everyone for their feedback yesterday. With everyone's help I have decided on all my system components with the exception of one.... my motherboard.. Here are my thoughts currently...

Athlon XP 1800+
512MB 2100DDR Crucial Ram
Asus V8200 Deluxe 64MB DDR Geforce3

I am trying to decide on a motherboard and was hoping someone might be able to offer some insight.. I currently have a Abit BX6-2 and it was a breeze.. I prefer jumperless and will not be doing any overclocking but would like to have the best performance possible.. I am open to all suggestions... If you think I would be better off with a different CPU/Video Card/Ram let me know.. I want to make sure I upgrade right the first time thus all the research.

Thanks in advance,

Most people would tell you to wait for the KT266A. If you do that then get the MSI K7T266 Pro2RU. If not then get the MSI K7T266 Pro-R. The KT266 isn't the best performer but the MSI board includes USB2, which will be useful in the near future.
