    Come on peeps!!

    Come on peeps anything I need to choose between
    the ASUS A7V133-C or the FIC AZ11 Motherboard


    Anyone at all both are about the same to look at 5 pci slots, 1 agp, both are able to take pc100/133 ram I know its not the best but its not expensive either.



    And what about Durons? whats the best choice here I can get a Duron 1.1mhz or Duron 1.2 for about the same price

    or Duron 950 for $20 less ??

    its just something to throw together for my son's upcoming bday.

    Get the ASUS board. I like ASUS boards, I had a few, not sure which ones off hand, they were old models, but worked really nicely, never had problems with an ASUS board. . If you're gettin a Duron, get over 1GHZ.

    BTW: HERE!
