- Athlon XP Motherboard Upgrade

I am looking to squeeze the last possible performance out of my system by
replacing the motherboard. I am tryig to delay when i have to replace most
of my main components.
My current motherboard is an ABit KR7A-RAID motherboard. I have an Athon XP
I have an AGP 8x Geforce 5600 Ultra graphics card and 768MB of PC2100 DDR.
My hard disk is a 180Gb IDE Seagate Barracuda.
I would like to upgrade my motherboard and want to keep all the above
componets although I have some 333Mhz memory that I can use
I am looking to spend £50 maximum as this is a stop gap before i have to
sheel out on replacing everything with all the new shiny components that are
coming out now.
I'd appreciate any suggestions on what would be a good motherboard to get?
Thanks In Advance
Re: Athlon XP Motherboard Upgrade
I thought of overclocking your cpu instead of upgrading the
motherboard, and there is a device on the market called "speed strip"
which unlocks the multipliers of XP processors. I think its about £30
and will hopefully be able to increase your system performance more
than a motherboard upgrade.
