id buy one of these:

Mobile Athlon XP 2400+
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-439&depa=1

Mobile Athlon XP 2600+
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-436&depa=1

and instead of the A7V600-X, get a:

NF7-S
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...127-166&depa=1

NF7-S v2
(good for overclocking)

and overclock it past 3200+ speeds like Nubius did.

Wayne, you cant OC with that NF7-S2, it's completely different from the NF7-S v2, I made that mistake when first setting up my system

I got the NF7-S2G (same as -S2 just with gigabit lan) and it's not even remotely for OC'ing.

Only the NF7-S v2 boards are.
