Default Motherboard Help


I have a Abit KD7 motherboard that held an AMD 1800+ processor, and 2x512 DDR Ram (400mhz).

Yesterday I upgraded my processor to AMD XP 3200+ (400mhz), but it turns out my motherboard cannot hold a chip clocked that high. The max is 2200+, but I can overclock it to 2500+. Also, the board only lets me have a 333 FSB.

So.. now I need to get a new motherboard. Can anyone recommend a cost effective and solid socket A motherboard that supports a 3200+ (400mhz) chip and 400 mhz DDR ram? I wasn't planning on doing this, but I may as well now.
