    Ok, I posted a thread the other day asking about upgrading my proc, well I'm abandoning that possibility. I am now on the look out for a new motherboard. I am currently using a 'Micro ATX' tower. Does anyone know a good motherboard that will fit/work with my tower? I have a good dvd and cd-r, aswell as a nice graphics card and soundcard. My mpeg decoder is also usable. its just that my proc is rather slow for my needs and a new mobo will aid in remeding this.

    The EPOX 8khm will fit, as it is a micro atx form factor. You can check other board manufacturers sites for other boards. You must ensure they are the micro atx form factor boards.

    The above is the epox site.

    Another thing to think about, is your power suply in the case good enough to support a faster system? AMD recommends a 300 watt or better power suply for an Athlon 800 and above.
    If not, you may want to buy another case that is ATX form factor and you will have many more boards to choose from.

    SeeYa

    hey, thnx rugrat.

    that site was exactly what I was looking for. As for the power supply thing. is it possible to take out my old power supply and install one that is 300 watts? I'm just curious, I don't really know if my power supply is 300 watts.
