I have concluded that one or both of my existing AMD Athlon 64 and Jetway mobo K8M8MSR2, socket 754 have gone toes up and must be replaced. I only need a similar spec, but not less, although if it is cost effective I might upgrade to dual core.
I can replace the mobo, then if necessary the cpu with equivalent socket 754 if I can find them at a reasonable price, or go for a low spec dual core.
Both the optical drive and hdd in this system are EIDE so I will need at least one EIDE port
I have found the following mobos on ebay:
AMD NVIDIA PCI EXPRESS SKT 754 FSB 800 ATX
with the AMD at apx $25 and both ASUS less than $20. Do you or anyone have any experience and recommendations on any of these 3 boards?.
While considering replacement/upgrade, is it sensible to stay with a socket 754? If it is not significantly more to move to a later/better socket? If the latter, which and why? TIA.
