    How people want to waste their money is of no concern to me, Cell phones are a waste of $$$, cable TV is a waste of $$$, golf is a waste of $$$, see lots of things are, but if a PIII makes poster happy then its their money to waste. Unless someone specifically asked for money spending advise, I just dont care.

    Pentium 3 technology and PC133 SDRAM is so far behind the times its like throwing money away. No PIII system will support anything close to new processor or video card. The socket 370 has been replaced by 3 different sockets on Intels side alone and the processor has gone through three times as many changes. AGP is no longer used in favour of PCI-Express.

    You can buy sticks of 256MB DDR2 that runs at 533Mhz for as little as $16, why waste time building a system around old and slow PC133?

    You need to be less confusing.
    Your first post states you want a board that can carry "any processors"?
    There is no such board.
    Your last post states "a board that can carry more then 1ghz processor and p4"
    Is the 'more than 1ghz processor' proposed to be a P3? And then you want it to be able to take a P4 processor as well?
    If so P3 and P4 processors use different sockets. You can't have a board that takes both.
    If not what do you mean?
    If you mean you are only going with a P4 processor, then all P4 processors are more than 1ghz. So you need a P4 board. Socket 478 or 775? Neither match your P3.
    Boards that take PC133 and DDR memory will be thin on the ground. DDR boards are far more common.
    Your PC133 memory will be a bottleneck. It is 4-5 years old. Why build a new PC around outdated memory?
    What comes first the motherboard or the processor? You need to choose. Your processor needs to match your motherboard or your motherboard needs to match you processor. Both of them then determine how fast your memory can go. Which will probably be backwards if you are moving forward with a P4 but sticking to your PC133 memory.
    So, P3 or P4? PC133 or DDR memory?
    What exactly are you after?
