Need Advice on Socket 7 Mainboard

I am planning to buy a new system, and i like the price of the AMD Athlon TB 1400 MHz. It would do the job, and I am fixed on getting that CPU.

But which Board to get? I tried to search for reviews, but even here on this site I didnt find any, I admit I was kinda overwhelmed by this site...

I hope someone can tell me a stable and fast Mainboard to use with the TB. Best would be no OnBoard Sound or Graphics.

  1. The asus <A HREF="" target="_new">A7PRO</A> and the <A HREF="" target="_new">A7V133</A> will take your Tbird CPU. The A7V133 comes with the newer KT133a chipset (the A7PRO comes with the older KT133), no built in sound or video, but it got a built in Promise IDE controller which let you install 4 more ide devices (all together 8 ide devices).

    But there are other boards for the Tbird, I would read up on Tom's review <A HREF="" target="_new">here</A>.
