Hi, i wanna know what is the best mother board for Athlon XP. I guess it´ll have Via or nVIdia chipset, but i cant figure whats the faster. If someone knows the EXACT model of the fastest athlonxp based motherboard please tell me!
Both the shuttle ak35gtr and abit kr7a are about the same, but the abit can run the fsb higher. I would get the regular kr7a-133 for ata 133 support.
I don't argue your board recommendations except that I wouldn't pay any premium for ATA133 support - which is a joke! Other than providing 48-bit addressing in order to accomodate a single HDD larger than 137GB (and not to many of us need a drive that large), ATA133 is worthless!

The Gigabyte 7VTXH+ has the 133 ability as well. Super stable, and can support 137GB as well. Probably cheaper than the rest also. I have the 7VTXH version, the only difference I belive is the 130 vs 133 ata.
