Mobo for AMD 3200, 64-bit, Socket 754
I had a problem with my PC not recognizing 1 stick of my PC2700 RAM. I tried it in my friends PC and it wouldnt boot so I sent it back. Well, I got my replacement 512 RAM from Kingston (2-day cross-shipping and pre-paid return FTW) and it recognized it on first boot and I havent had any problems since.
The awful part is, when I put the bad stick in my friends PC (before RMA-ing it) it fried his board. IDK WTF happened, maybe a short in a connector or something, Ive never heard of anything like this before. Short of it is, hes getting a new PC and I offered to buy his AMD 3200 64-bit socket 754, partly because I feel guilty and also because its a nice upgrade from my current Athlon 1800. I think I can get a cheap board for around $50 or so and I should be good to go with the rest of my existing hardware.
Can you please recommend a couple of Mobos for this CPU? Maybe a cheaper version, and also one that would be good if I decide to overclock?
