If I may make a suggestion... the 865PE chipset is pretty spicey... especially the PERL

the basic boards have at least 8x AGP, dual channel DDR400(and all the way back to 266), 800MhzFSB (and is reverse compatible all the way to the Celeron w/ 400mhz FSB)support, 5.1 channel audio (20 bit), dual channel SATA, hyperthreading, usb2.0, etc etc...
same board with more stuff includes Gigabyte ethernet or LAN,and RAID

The 865G chipset (ie D865GBF - has one more PCI slot than the PERL) has basically the same stuff but onboard video, if you are into that (intel extreme graphics 2)

In comparison with the 875 chipset... you are getting alot of the same features for a little less cash (865PERL w/ RAID+GBe = $136; 875PBZ = $156)

just my opinion... but then again, I could have no idea what Im talking about

there are a couple of new boards coming out from VIA and ATi... both of whom should have canterwood based solutions soon enough... probably on market in q303 or q403...

how soon do you want a replacement canadian_divx ?

:) I am also looking to upgrade in a bit... first hand info will be great...

Now that you qualified it "for the price" look at whatever ASUS model is using the 865 chipset. ASUS and a few others have built most of the bandwidth enhancements that are in the 875 into their MB at no extra cost. The proof that they work is that Intel is threatening law suits...

Also, keep in mind what processor you want to use. See above comments on FSB. The higher FSB proc will add a significant increase to your cost.

BTW My next upgrade will be to an Intel based system, for the first time since 1987 and my 80286/12mHz proc.

The king is dead! :confused:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
