Thanks suexec; sounds good.
i've had my cheapo nForce2 motherboard (the MSI no frills one, K7N2) for a couple days now and i've been trying to figure out if i should put it in or return it.
Well it's a pretty red colour.
-- i thot the Epox one would be cheaper but here in Montreal it's very expensive.
Also looked up the CPU compatibility list for this KT266 motherboard i'd change out if i actually go ahead with it, and it's compatible up to the Palomino CPU. Says it's not compatible with T'bred and up.
