View Full Version : Duron Mobo
I'm getting Duron 600MHZ(or 700).
Any suggestion on mobo?
If the mobo have at least 1 ISA slot and priced aroud $100, it would be great.
My suggestion would be <A href="http://www.abit-usa.com/english/product/kt7.htm" target="_new" title=Abit KT7 spec page">ABIT's KT7</a> but there's no way you'll get it for $100 or even close to that price <b>wein</b>.
You can also take a look at <A href="http://www.msi.com.tw/Product/mainboard/k7tpro.htm" target="_new" title="MSI K7 Pro spec page">MSI's K7T Pro</a> some of which are supposed to have an isa bus slot.
Soyo also has <A href="http://www.soyousa.com/syk7vta.html" target="_new" title="Soyo SY-K7VTA spec page">the SY-K7VTA</a> which has an isa bus slot. I haven't seen any reviews of it thus far.

Go for the Asus A7V or Abit KT7. Both are a little over $100 but worth the extra few dollars. The abit is the way to go though. And if you have a lil' extra cash get the Abit KT7-Raid.

You will probably save money by buying a combo. All 3 of these places have a Duron 600, a quality motherboard (Gigabyte or FIC) and a heatsink/fan for under $190. Look at pricewatch for other combos:
Gigabyte GA-7ZM w/ Duron 600 & heatsink &fan
United Micro, Inc
Gigabyte GA-7ZM w/ Duron 600 & GlobalWin heatsink & fan
FIC AZ11 w/ Duron 600 & heatsink
$10-$15 more than these gets you a Duron 650 instead at other places and $35 more than these gets you a Duron 700 combo.
As always, watch out for the shipping charges...

with the duron 600 selling for $60, the ga7zm for a little over $100, the fop32 for $20, the savings really aren't that great. plus you're not going to want the ga-7zm since it's a micro-atx board (3 pci slots) nor will you want the az11 since it sucks. spend the extra $40 and get the a7v or kt7

Yep. It is hard to find a good Athlon mobo for <$100. I will be getting that kind of combo (6-700 Duron) in a little while and I have been pricing them. I will probably go with one of those combo deals.
