Default mobo's and RAM

are there any good mobo's out there (AMD) that are good in most senses and can handle more than 2 dimm slots of dual channel pc3200 RAM? im buying 1gig (2x512) pc3200 to start with and want to be able to upgrade later.

ive been looking at the abit nf7-s but i just found out that it can only do 2x dimms for pc 3200.

anyone know any good mobos that can handle this?

Nf7-s , guess you want a board supporting an Athlon XP.

I'll recomend aASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe

No, it can can support three PC2100 or PC2700 dimms, but can only support two PC3200 dimms.
