Which motherboard for Athlon 1200 and PC133 RAM

I have a thread running about a problem which increasingly appears to be caused by a faulty motherboard. click here

This is an subject I know little about and am wondering how to go about replacing the board to see if that cures the problem!

Is there a board I could buy off the shelf new or am I limited to secondhand - I know e-bay is an option but while I'm happy to buy software and the like which travels well, I'm not too keen on buying a delicate lump of electronics which might not work when I get it :-(

Cheers again for any advice

Check here, this is where I get all my motherboards from and each product has buyer reviews which can be very helpful indeed.

Prices are very good and delivery is £4.99:click here


I already had a check in good old ebuyer but none of the motherboards appear to say they support my PC133 RAM - they use newer DDR Ram.

Proberly try your local independent Computer store, WOW things move fats dont they I cant believe you cant buy them on ebuyer anymore

one in stock micro atx format

from the blowout deals section - used

another used but quite old model click here

good luck

Cheers but if I'm buying from a retailer I'd rather buy new - not sure what bits might be missing.

Cheers georgemac I went for your second suggestion off e-bay (against my better judgement) - fingers crossed it works :-)

Got the motherboard, works a treat, have been running for 1 week without any system freezes so that must have been the problem (I am touching wood as I type).

Thanks again.
