Operating System Version:Windows XP Home
Processor:AMD Athlon(TM) XP1800+ @ 1.55GHz
ASUS A7A266-E ACPI BIOS 1010 mobo
Installed Memory:512MB (2x 256 mb pc 2100 DDR Ram, 2 slots available)
Video Adapter Model:NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti 63MB (63MB Video) (128MB AGP)
Creative Audigy Audio Processor (WDM)5.1 sound dtt220 speakers
1x 80 Gig HDD (master) maxtor 7200
1x 120 Gig HDD (slave) maxtor 7200
That was the specs and now the questions......

I want to upgrade the DDR memory to one gig of DDR.
What is the max spec of memory my mobo will take.I currently have pc2100.Manual states 1600/2100 is supported. Asus website was not much use. Crucial website ran a diagnostic test which showed available compatible memory. This included memory up to pc 3200, which confused this right??
If 2100 is the max supported, then I'm after suggestions for a reasonably priced mobo which will allow the flexibility to upgrade memory to max spec and also allow possible upgrade to amd 64 bit cpu some time in the future .......any ideas please?
Or will pc 2100 spec memory be ok for a couple of years yet for gaming. Im not a hard core gamer but I like them to run as well as possible.......normally BF42 and MOHAA

I am no expert and find some of the terms a bit confusing so laymans language would be great
 I am UK based so price comparison $USD to

here are some boards that are designed for Athlon 64...

Abit KV8-MAX 3 - $171.00
Aopen AK89 MAX - #132.00
Asus K8V DELUXE - $132.00
Chaintech ZNF3-150 ZENITH - $198.00
FIC K8-800T - $99.00
Gigabyte GA-K8NNXP-940 - $230.00 (supports the Athlon 64 FX)
Leadtek WinFast K8NWFX Pro - n/a (supports Athlon 64 FX, Opteron)

The FIC board is the cheapest because it doesn't have alot of extras like RAID.

For me I like to spend now rather than later. if you spend cheap then you'll find yourself upgrading sooner also.

Hope I helped...
