I'm looking for a motherboard that uses the AMD processor line (I will NOT purchase Intel) and allows the use of 168-pin SDRAMs while still going beyond 1.5 GHz. I'm looking at the 2.0 to 2.4 GHz range. Unfortunately, the only motherboards that I can find that go beyond 1.5 GHz require DDR. (The system is already 1.4 GHz.) I'd prefer to stick with SDRAM simply because I have 1/2 GB of available memory that would be ridiculous to put into some of my other machines because quite frankly they don't need it, so adding more memory just for the sake of adding memory would be a complete waste. I also am not impressed with the inflated "benefits" to high RAM bus speeds, which are quite frankly a farce and have no practical advantages to even heavy home use with the exception of impressing friends. Although requiring the purchase of DDR RAM isn't going to put a complete stop to my upgrade, I'm a bit put off because 1/2 GB of DDR RAM is more expensive than the motherboard/CPU combo that I was looking at! (256 MB is not an option for what this PC will be doing, so don't even suggest it. ) What would REALLY be good is a motherboard that can handle DDR and SDRAM to allow my to upgrade to DDR when the time is more appropriate and funds are more readily available. I prefer Asus and Soyo, although I've heard that Gigabyte is quite good as well. Anyone know of any motherboards that can do what I'm looking for?
