    The Albatron PX865PE (what I have) is a nice board and not too expensive. It lets you adjust the FSB in 1MHz steps, and also lets you increase the CPU/RAM voltage (for overclocking). You will have to buy DDR RAM though, no new motherboards take PC133 anymore.

    As for performance, rather than ignite the old "AMD vs. Intel" debate yet again, I invite you to compare the two processors here: http://www.tomshardware.com/cpu/20041221/cpu_charts-15.html#directx_9

    If your processor is a Northwood P4, it's just over twice as fast running Unreal Tournament 2004 as your 1.3GHz Duron.
