well this will, but i will not recommend it for AMD, as if you want to bring out the juice.

SiS chipsets didnt showed up performance on AMD, so either buy VIA chipset or best is to get nVidia N-Force-2 chipset board.

Asus A7N8X Deluxe, is in this case a ewll recommended board, as you can as well buy a 2500+ Barton core AMD processor and buuy this board, rather than buying 2800+ processor and getting some 2nd quality board.

system speed does not only depends on Processor speed, it is as well dependent on efficent mobo chipset design.

rest is your own choice, as this mobo will surely support any of the AMD AthlonXP/Sempron (socket-A)
