Mothermoard upgrade - need help
I am using MSI k8MM-V, MS-7142, 1.00 Motherboard with Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 2800+, x86 Family 15 Model 4 Stepping 10, Processor Count: 1.
Right now i want to replace my mobo due to its huge functinal problems with a new one on which both my processor and the DDR ram supports.
Budget is not issue

Welcome to TechIMO!
If budget is not an issue, why are you fixing a computer, that is SO outdated?
I thought I was the last to let a computer go.(I still run a Barton from 2003, but I wouldn't get a new MD if it dies)
The biggest problem with this is, nobody carries them anymore.
The only one NewEgg lists, is a rectified one, and it is out of stock.

You would most likely need to find one on eBay.
Just look for a Socket 754, that lists your CPU.
Here you go, I don't do e-bay anymore though.

I just did a search, on NewEgg, and the only board that came up with DDR. was the same 754 board, out of stock.
Maybe one of the other member, can find some.
I know your feeling, but DDR 3 is dirt cheap.(I have expensive DDR also)
Newegg.com - Computer Hardware, Memory, Desktop Memory, 2GB (2 x 1GB)
A $75 motherboard, $17memory(2-1gig sticks) and $77 sandy bridge CPU, and you are most of the way there.
Even this cheap upgrade. would be dramatic.
Depending on you video card needs, you would be able to upgrade to a very good video card, or use the CPUs on board video, that most Sandbridge CPU have.
It could be done even cheaper, with AMD, if all you want is a BIG improvement.
If you give us a budget, we can put something together.
We will want to know, what power supply you have, and it's specs, so we know if you need a new one.
A new one is $35 to $50, and we only recommend quality brand names.
Also What games, and programs do you run?
Other than that, you are pretty much, at the mercy of e-Bay.
If you have to, you can reuse all your drives, with the right board.
Depending on your case, you may be able to reuse that.
Then all you need is an operating system, for $100, unless you have a full version of XP, or Win7.Hard Sayin Not Knowin
