    need help building comp

    I need to find a motherboard that supports a processor with a 333mhz FSB. I've found that some places say their boards using the via kt400 chipset support it, but on the via page, it says the kt400 supports 200/266mhz FSB. Any help?? thanks.

    in response to Cgawd:
    i'm looking to use the AMD Athlon XP 2700+ or 2800+
    i'm going to use at least a gig of ram (a max of 2.5 or 3 would be nice) Doesn't require anytyhing special onboard, won't be using raid, sound i'll get seperate (audigy2), 8x agp would be nice. I'm pretty much willing to work with anything with the 333 fsb. Yeah i know about pricewatch too, but i came up with no better leads on the fsb than anywhere else, i've been trying for about 3 weeks, and the leads i come up with are inconclusive.
    Thanks a lot for offering to look it up for me. Hope I gave you enough info.

    well it won't be a problem getting the processors, i just need to get the motherboard, i can throw the processors on later. So if you do have any leads that'd be great. thanks again.

    ps ride or die
    i checked out pricepc and discovered that it didn't have what i needed, and it was darn expensive too.

    Well maybe youll just have to wait until it comes out maybe? i havent found the cpu/motherboard anywhere, wth. i dont follow amd so i dont know whats up with that, maybe you should spring for a P4, youll be happier.

    well i have been getting some bad info lately, but today i finally found some info that shows the testing of xp 2700 and 2800 processors on via kt400 chipsets, therefore boards i've found with those chipsets support the processors. Thanks to all that have given me their input.

    by the way cgawd, i'll NEVER EVER get another pentium, i am currently using an amd and have never been happier. (plus they are way way cheaper for the same processor power)

    On pricewatch.com they have the KT333 which looks like what you need, designed for Athlon.
