    there will be one hell of a bottle neck with the CPU but it can be done

    is it possible that the K7 will perform better on the newer, faster, mother board?

    Why not upgrade your CPU? On PriceWatch.com, you can get an Athlon XP 1500+ for $50. You can get an Athlon XP 2200+ for $75. A relatively cheap investment that will do leaps and bounds over your current K7.

    yeah, but $110 + $75 = more than i can spend right now


    so i was wondering if i had to wait to upgrade both,.. i will upgrade to a 1800+ or 2200+ when the time comes.. probably in less than a month's time of buying the A7N8X.

    thanks for all your replies too.
