Yeah, I'd move her to an AMD board and CPU if I could get a KT7 or KT7E
and CPU for under $100.

Still, I'd prefer a Xeon over a normal P-II.

Its running a Celeron 300A right now, a Socket370 chip in a "slotket"
adapter.  Motherboard is an ABit BH6, with two PC133 (board only needs
PC100; its a 66Mhz FSB) SDRAM DIMMs, 2 x 128meg.  Riva TNT 16meg AGP
video card, Maxtor 17.2gig IDE HD, DVD-ROM, CD-ROM drives, SBLive! sound
card, SOHOWare 10/100 tulip-chipset ethernet (PCI)...  I just need to
upgrade the video card and CPU.  Probably gonna put a GeForce 2 MX 32meg
AGP card in.
