shermstix You would do yourself better to save that cash and buy a better CPU and cooling solution. Your XP2100 Palamino won't OC very well, especially with a VIA chipset. Save your cash for a better set-up. 256MB of RAM won't show you any difference at all. Neither will a better Mobo.

Sloth_Boy Why dont you save up a littel more and get something better. You'll actually be saving becuase the part will last longer and have better performance

I am currently running an ASUS A7V8X board.

Components to be swapped:

Athlon XP2100+ (paly)
PC3200 512kb
Geforce FX5600

Heres the board I am looking at because it is very inexpensive and is much faster(i think, u be the judge) MoBo Here please give your opinion
Well, I hate to break it to you........No

blob Hence, you should buy the Shuttle AN35N Ultra.

Wiggy A higher quality motherboard does mean better components on the board...information will flow from place to place faster depending on the workmanship and so on.

i agree it wont really increase the performance noticably, but it will make differences.

Thats my problem, the mobo only handles one PC3200 memory. I would have to look for a 1ghz single module. They are like $130 which is way out of my budget of like $50.

BlazeR What is better than to upgrade, I don't just want to shell out on 256mb ram and barely get anygains.

Will buying 256mb more ram help my computer out a lot?

Check out this Ram for $31.00

blob That motherboard is horrible, grab a Shuttle AN35N Ultra
