    I`m upgrading my curretn Athlon 1.2 to a P4 2.6 and would really appreciate
    any recommendations on Intel motherboards. I`m looking for 800FSB, DDR400
    with 8x AGP compatible with PC3200DDR RAM.

    Any suggestions? Any sites with benchmarks? I can`t seem to find any.

    Thanks

    Yes, although the magazine publishers explain it away with 13 issues,
    month prior to publication date , getting stuff out before the hols it
    never makes any sense.

    The what's in next month is - Issue 213 out on 22 Jan.

    My suggestion is this-
    Going from an Athlon 1.2 to a P4 2.6 isn't enough of an upgrade to be worth the
    expense.
