I may have missed it, but it sounds like you've bought a board of Ebay
and you're not sure it's good or not. What I would do in that
situation is swap in known good parts. in fact I had to do this a few
weeks ago for a relative's puter. I had to pull parts out of another
puter and put them on the bad board before I could determine the board
was bad. Make sure you have an ample supply of thermal compound! LOL

Ultimately, price is the deciding factor, but I try to get as fast as
I can so it'll last longer in terms of upgradability. They've already
started to phase out PC2100 too, which means the puters I built 2-3
years ago will need new RAM should they get a new board :(

LOL I did notice a slight difference from PC2100 to PC2700 memory but
it was not blazing by any means.

I use www.pricegrabber.com for my online stuff. Pricewatch was just
too confusing visually for me.

Lucky you! LOL They say don't use the wrong fan because they're
shaped differently and you could crack the chip. And altho you want
your morning cereal to go *crunch*, hearing that from your CPU is not
a good thing :)
HTH, YMMV, HANW :)

On June 1, 2001, Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, told the Chicago
Sun-Times: "Linux is cancer." Unsurprisingly that's incorrect; LINUX
was released on August 25th 1991 and is therefore a Virgo.
