I want to upgrade my PC without spending a fortune. I've decided on an Athlon XP from 1500-2000 because they're inexpensive. However, I'm going through hell trying to find a motherboard. - Which brands (or even specific boards) do you recommend? - Are there any great motherboard searching tools out there? I require PCI slots. Lots of PCI slots. Or, perhaps a compromise, but here's my problem: I have 5 PCI devices: SCSI card, Network, Sound, and two video cards (dual monitor setup). I also want to use ATA133 IDE, and there don't seem to be a lot of boards that support higher than ATA100. I can use a Promise controller but then I need 6 PCI slots. What are my options? Here's what I see: 1. Lose the network card, and go integrated. Not a huge problem, but I'm concerned about quality (I use nothing but 3COM as others just don't stack up) and upgradability (what happens when I want to go GigE?). 2. Lose the sound card, and go integrated. Presents the same problems as above. 3. Lose the SCSI card and go integrated. This was my first choice, but motherboards with onboard SCSI are $$$$. 4. Replace the two video cards with a single AGP card capable of supporting multiple monitors. Now this is an idea I can go for. Any recommendations in this area? Foregoing that, are there any great 6 or 7 PCI slot motherboards with onboard ATA133 (Socket A)? Thanks in advance for your assistance.
