Hey everyone, I am new to this board. I just wanted everyone's advice and suggestion on which AMD XP CPU I should get and also what motherboard should I go with. I plan to use this new system for a server and also use it for playing games. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Im building a computer later this week, and I've been looking at the:

Abit KX7-333 Via KT333/VT8233A ATA133/DDR333 SoA

Now i don't know if people are having any trouble with these boards, but from reading up on it, it looks ok. it supports all the up-to-date features, and 2200+ SoA.

As for your processor, I would go for the 2000+ (1.67Ghz)as the price difference (here at least) doesn't justify the minor jump in speed.

Wait until you get a few more posts before splashing out though, other people will have different views, and may have had bad experiences with the above. It should be a good games machine, however, multiprocessor support might be a good idea if your running a server.

what kind of server is it going to be for? how many simultaneous connections do you expect?

how do you shoot the devil in the back? what happens if you miss? -verbal
