    Biostar M7NCG & AMD Duron 1.8 GHz

    Ok just would like an opinion on this :

    Biostar M7NCG 400 nForce2

    AMD Duron 1.8 GHz
    http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...ctCode=80281-0

    will this be compitible with my OPUS 150 ?


    Im trying to decide wether this or the VIA EPIA M II 120000

    sorry to keep posting threads like this asking for opinions

    It'll be compatible, but I think you have to buy directly from opus and tell them you have that model motherboard. I think they have to modify the Opus before it will work with it.

    Have you considered the Asus A7N8X-VM. It's a really good board, I think a little more expensive than the Biostar, but it works with the opus. You won't have any problems with the processor unless you going to be using the mobile athlon, which needs the 'wire mod' to get the correct speed, but it will use less power than other processors. Plus with this board you can get 800x480 resolution with the onboard graphics.

    Ok well that board looks nice .. The Mobile athalon seems like a good solution but Im not that knowledgable about overclocking and moding the processor...

    so the Asus A7N8X-VM + the AMD Duron 1.8 GHz u think is ok (how many watts)

    basically I want sumthing more powerful then the VIA but I may just go with the VIA because I dont know enough about this "wire mod" that is needed

    Well, you can sell your Opus and buy a new one that's compatible with the Biostar. I'm sure you can get almost as much as you paid for it.
