Hello,

What options or needs are you making this computer? Do you need on-board video, or if you are supplying a video card, is it AGP or PCI-Express? Do you need a barebones budget board or you looking to make a gaming machine? There are a plethora of motherboards out there. Myself and many other people like to use www.newegg.com for their computer hardware purchases and has a nice advanced search option so you can find exactly what you want.

Cheers,
Tom

Sorry, AMD's integrated memory controller doesn't support DDR2, so neither do any AMD motherboards! In fact, DDR2 doesn't peform "twice as fast as DDR" even though the name seems to imply that is the case. On Tom's Hardware Guide they state in a very recent article:

You might be inclined to believe that the higher overclocking potential of DDR2 RAM might translate into measurable performance gains, but sadly, that's not necessarily true. In real-world situations, a P4 system running DDR2-533 is only slightly faster than one running DDR400. Likewise, stepping up to DDR2-667 produces less effect than you might desire.


So for a fast AMD system, get some low-latency high-quality DDR and you'll be very happy.
