    I am upgrading to a new machine so I need some advice
    Which are the best motherboards for the amd Athlon 1.1 ghz and the athlonXP 1.4 ghz and the 1.5 ghz. ?

    1. What is Agp Pro ?

    2. Can you use an Agp 2x card in Agp 4x motherboard ?

    3. How are the boards of DFI and GIGABYTE rated against ASUS for the amd athlons and xp?

    4. Which are the best HDD( 40 gb) seagate or Maxtor ( since quantum has discontinued )/

    5. Would 256mb sdram similar in performance to 128 DDr ram ?

    6. What happened to Rd ram ?

    Please advise if my Voodoo 3 3000 would be compatible with motherboards you recommend for the Amd Athlon or the XP/

    info on agp pro

    http://www.motherboards.org/articlesd/tech-planations/920_2.html

    You should be able to use an agp 2x card in a 4x motherboard.

    DDR is faster with data on rising and lowering pulse

    RDram is used with Intel P4 systems.

    voodoo3 will not work in an agp pro slot

    Maxtor at the moment in my opinion, only because of problems related to ibm drives, otherwise, ibm

    Asus motherboards better, followed by epox, abit
