I am looking for a motherboard to run a Athlon XP 2100, with PC2100 DDR RAM. You guys have any suggestions?

Whatever price, as long as it runs dependably, and has future expansion possibilities, unlike my ECS K7S5A. Would like AGP 4x/8x, can handle a faster cpu, memory, and FSB, ATA133/100/66.

I've been looking at some Gigabytes as well. How about one of these, GA-7S748-L or GA-7VA

out of the 2 I'd go for the GA-7VA, but I like the FIC - KT-748 mainly because I like the fic mobo'* always have but thats just personal preference there

Why the 7VA over the other? And what about FIC do you like?

From what I see the two Gig'* are fairly similar, except the 7VA only has 333FSB, whereas the other will do 400 FSB>
