My friend might be able to get a S423 P4 1.5 for free..

trying to look for a mobo..



I was looking at

ABIT BW7 (http://www.atacom.com/program/print_html_new.cgi?cart_id=8453674_66_218_249_52&Pagecode=1|MB42&Item_code=MB42_ABIT_4B_W0&USER_ID=www)
and
MSI-6529 845 Pro (http://www.atacom.com/program/print_html_new.cgi?cart_id=8453674_66_218_249_52&Pagecode=1|MB42&Item_code=MB42_MICS_84_PR&USER_ID=www)

both 845 Chipsets only SDR but the RDR Mobos are too expensive (Pricewatch) especially considering they're old..
I was looking only at reputable dealers on Pricewatch, or dealers I've heard of before..

Which one of these mobos should I tell him to get?
(or if there's a better one that a reputable dealer sells you can suggest it)

I was hoping to find a DDR Board...but I don't think there are any DDR w/S423

Here's a refurb Intel board with RDram for $39 from compgeeks

and 2x256 of samsung for $134

I personally would stay away from the sdram and p4 combo as the sdram gets overwhelmed by the bus speed of the p4 and cant keep up.
