- Motherboard for PC2100 RAM?

Everything in the world of computers changes so fast these days - I know
that PC3700 RAM is now available. Thing is, a friend of mine bought 1GB of
PC2100 RAM for his machine just 2 months ago but his motherboard has now
gone faulty (RAM still OK-tested it in my computer).
Are there still any decent motherboards available that use PC2100 and if so,
what do the group recommend?

Memory is best used in conjunction with a CPU having
complimentary FSB. In other words, "most" modern CPUs how
have a higher FSB than would be optimally paired with PC2100
memory. However, most any motherboard that accepts DDR (1)
is backwards compatible. I suggest that you either buy a
motherboard to replace the one the friend had go bad, so
that system reuses same CPU, or for a completely new build
go with a Celeron-D as it still uses a lower FSB than a P4.
