Upgrade question

Hello,

It appears that my Epox 8RDA+ has issues with "bad caps" on thos little
transistors near the cpu.
I am looking to get another board. My question is using the 754 socket, (a
friend gave me an sempron AMD 64 XP2800+), what board would you recommend? I
also have 2 sticks of kingston hyper X 2700, (333), that I wish to use as
well. I'm not too familiar with the AMD 64 platform, and I don't know if my
memory would work with it.

Do you have any advice?

Thanks.

RF

Your ram will work. As for a board, don't know what you want. About any
would work ok if you don't plan on overclocking much. ASRock K8Ugrade-NF3
would be a good cheap choice.
