This is ridiculous but one of my Instructors gave me an AMD Athlon XP 1700+ for absolutely nothing.

I'm definitly going to use it if I can. I believe it's Socket A if i'm not mistaken. Anyone have any clue what a good board will to be to use it ? I will probably end up using it for either a at home server ( movies, music, games, shared throughout the house ) or i'll just have fun overclocking. Well, whatever I decide, can anyone help me pick out a nice mobo for it ? I would really appreciate it. Any suggestions are welcome. I'm all ears.

Unfortunately there aren't a whole lot of high performance Sckt A mobos out there anymore. Try to pick up an Abit Nf7-s V2. One of the best sckt A mobos ever made (maybe I'm a bit biased since it's what I run now). Also, anything from DFI for sckt A is nice as well. You can look on Ebay for them. I've seen the Abit Nf7-s V2 for like $70-80. Since it's an older XP, you may be able to unlock it as well. Look around for some of the guides on how to do it. I've never tried unlocking an XP but it seems pretty straight forward.
