Default A few questions

I just got a bunch of computer stuff for pretty free. I just trade 2 car battery terminals for the following

DIMM Elixir 256mb DDR-266 (Still holds life-time warranty w/manu)

AMD Duron (Socket 462) 1.1GHz Processor
AMD Duron (Socket 462) 1.3GHz Processor
Gigabyte GA-7VKML Rev3.0 Motherboard (Socket 462 / AMD)
ECS K7S5A Motherboard (Socket 462 / AMD)
DIMM Crucial 128mb PC-133
DIMM Hyundai Chipset 128mb PC-133
DIMM Unknown 64mb PC-133

Which of these 2 boards is better for basic online use, not gaming

I will recommend the Gigabyte one for a more steady performance.

I have had a K7S5A with an AMD 1700+ and it worked fine for many years. It still runs no problem.

Yes I got them for 2 battery terminals from a guy on another Car Forum I go on. He works for a computer company, he need nice Car audio Battery terminals and I wanted PC parts, so it worked out great for all
