Default Need help deciding which motherboard!

Hi Guys!

I'm upgrading my motherboard basically i've found 2 motherboards that i like but don't know which one!

Its either:


I'm upgrading from a very old gigabyte GA-7IEX4 with a duron 750, its been a damn good board but i need to move on.

Which brings me to this problem, would those 2 boards take the duron 750 which is 200fsb, bearing in mind that either those boards take 266/333/400 fsb cpu's.

And also would any ddr memory be suited to that duron.

Thanks for your reply slip!

Yeah they both say they take cpu's from duron-athlon xp just wanted to make sure.
But don't know which to go for theres hardly any difference in the 2 other than chipset used.

I'm going to have to stick with the duron for the time being.
