I asked a question in another thread about bumping the PIII on an old Socket 370 board, but I'm also considering moving on up to a 478 board and going to a Celeron CPU.
Let's say I ditch the old PIII and old Socket 370 board with only 100mhz FSB.
I want to move up to a 478 board and a CPU around 1.4ghz or better. I can't find a barebones board ANYWHERE. They all come with either video or audio integrated. I wanted to use my old sound card and video card. I could MAYBE live with a board that had integrated sound- but not video. I gotta use my own video card- or maybe buy a hot new one with some more RAM as my old card only has 32mb of RAM. I do play some games on my PC, and run some digital video.
Where can I get a barebones 478 board? It doesn't have to have a 2ghz FSB or anything like that. I'd be happy with 400-600mhz FSB on the board and 3 DDR memory slots.
Would it be worth it to buy a bundled board with integrated audio and then pop a few $$ for the new video card?
