My motherboard recently fried and I am looking for a motherboard that has onboard video/lan/sound that accepts amd athlon xp 1700+ and pc133 ram. Because I have a perfectly working processor and 512 mb of pc133 ram, can someone point me in a direction where I can find a board with these specs? Thanks.

I just looked (for longer than I should have) and came up blank. I know they made them at one time with DDR and PC133 on the board.
Pretty sure EpoX used to make one.
But no matter what you are crazy to limit yourself like this...

If you buy a dusty board that supports PC133 you are going to be sorry. Why not for the same price buy a cheap-o regular board ($50-$60) and 512 MB's of RAM (about $60). This way you can buy a board that:
A: Has faster memory
B: Will support faster CPU's when you want to upgrade that
C: Has a newer and more full featured chip set

It just makes no sense to limit your entire system to save $60.

after searching for a really long time again just now, I also was thinking this is kind of rediculous, so I am gonna try and find a cheap motherboard that has onboard audio/video/lan/usb and buy 512 mb ram any suggestions?
