    I need a decent P3 mother board for about 50 bucks or less if possible. I own a P2 system but I have never built an Intel machine b4 so all your Intel guru's out there can you lend me a hand?


    thanks

    Are you looking for a Slot-1 board or a Socket-370?

    My desktop is a Slot-1 P3, and I have an ASUS P3B-f.
    It's an AWESOME board, and was, in fact, considered to be the best one at that time.

    Even if you're looking for the newer Socket-370 boards, I'd definitely recommend an ASUS board. Top-of-the-line features, and they last REALLY long.

    What P3 is it going to be? If it's a tualatin p3, i'd recommend either the ASUS TUSL2-C or Gigabyte 6OXET (very hard to find). I think both of these are considered the two best tualatin boards for p3's/celeron's.

    socket 370 P3 800


    I think there is there is something wrong with the current one I have because it will only register upto 128mb of ram per slot and it won't boot properly 2 dif hard drives and 3 dif sticks of ram and it has the same issue and I thought it wierd it was only seeing 128mbs a stick when they where 256mb. 384 seems way low for a P3 board to support
