My personal choice would be.

A7N8X-E DELUXE A

AMD RETAIL XP2800+ BAR INC H/SINK & FAN WITH 3 YEAR WARRANTY

RAM 512MB PC3200 DDR400 BRANDED

Reading your post in the helproom this
should be more than adiquate for your needs.

PS shouldnt your first line read Shop locale :-))

Something else to consider:

For £200.00 (€280) you could have the Asus K8V Delux Mobo and AMD64 3000+

Their prices are dropping with the arrival of the 939 pin processors/boards due.

You would then be in postition when 64 bit applications start to arrive later this year.

Hi sidecar sid and bremner, thank you both for your input, it helps to narrow things down.

You've lost me with your comment re first line sidecar sid <:-(

bremner, the mobo and CPU you mention seem like a good buy, I'll ask for a quote from them.

Thanks again,

Regards,

Sapins.

Sorry about the first line confusion it was just me trying to be funny about the French saying everything backwards.
