    HEY,
    I WANT TO BUY A NEW MOTHER BOARD WITH FASTEST PROCESSOR, MEMORY AND AGP SUPPORT. I HAVE A P4 1.5GHz ON A D845WN MBOARD HAVING 256MB SDRAM. I AM GOING TO CHANGE MY MEMORY TO DDR.
    WHICH IS THE SUITABLE MOTHERBOARD FOR ME. I AM NOT GOING TO CHANGE MY PROCESSOR SOON. SO I NEED A MOTHERBOARD WITH BACKWARD COMPATIBILITY ALSO.
    I AM LOOKING FOR A MOTHERBOARD WHICH SUPPORTS DDR 533MHz, AGP 8X AND USB 2.0. I ALSO NEEDS ATLEAST 3 PCI SLOTS. PLEASE HELP ME FOR A SELECTION. ALSO TELL ME ABOUT THE COST.

    FIRST of all this wrong place to ask this question always to hardware section to ask these kind of question !

    go with some 865 varient .....it supports even the prescotts ...and some have agp 8x slot .....all of them have usb 2.0 .....but u can't get ddr2 support as of now since they come only with 915 or 925 chipset and they support only LG775 socket processors .....which is not urs!

    sorry i can't tell u about the prices

    Hey, I hav a P4 1.6Ghz proccy with Intel 845wn mobo and 256mb Sd RAM. I wanted to do the same thing but then again decided against it.
    I am going to wait for a few months and then go for AMD 64 processor and motherboard.:)

    i think rakesh here has the better idea ... id really suggest u do that than just upgrading ur mobo .. just for ram that too
    no mobo supports ddr 533 .. .thats cuz ddr 533 DOES NOT EXIST

    Care to mention your budget first? :wink:

    DDR533 does exist.The think is no chipset officially supports this speed.This RAM is intended for overclockers who bump the FSB high and might encounter an obstackle due to RAM speed limitation. :wink:

    yeah demon i already agreed i was wrong theres no need to rub it in :p
    anyways i found somethin on ddr533
    yeah no board supports it officially
    its ram for overclockers and yeah apparently they exist ( damn i hate being wrong ... guess i need to do more research )
    anyways here an overclockin article on a GEIL 533 ram module
    they managed it at 280mhz fsb .... so thats 560 in ddr terms ...
    http://www.ocworkbench.com/2003/geil/pc4200/pc4200-1.htm
    i still dun get it tho
    they used an asus p4p800s-e and say it supported 533mhz
    guess my next stop is the asus site

    Go 4 a 865G or 865PE or 875P based mobo. the last one is the performance champ with tons of options like SATA support 4 DDR400, AGP 8x, and all. 865G features onboard GFX which can b useful if u r not in 3D modelling or Gaming
