ive been thinking of getting an Athlon and an Asus A7A 266 mobo.

I dont really have aclue about mobo chipsets - does this motherboard have any problems/conflicts with win2000 or XP?

Any help would be much appreciated........

I have a secondary machine with a A7A266 and it runs XP just fine. It also runs Win2K fine as well.

Yep, same results here. I've been running XP since beta 2 on a a7a266 and before that it was windows 2000, never had any problems.

One thing I have seen mentioned about the board is that its somewhat picky about DDR memory and works best with crucial DDR. Crucial is what I do have and have not had any problems.

http://www.amdmb.com is a good site with lots of AMD motherboard info and message boards.

Good luck! :)
