    For a board to use with an Athlon XP, look for Asus model
    numbers that begin with K7.

    Asus model numbers that begin with K8 are for Athlon64, AthlonFX,
    or Opteron.

    I don't expect the motherboard prices to change dramatically.
    The K8 motherboards seem to have about a 15% price premium over
    their K7 counterparts, so that 15% is probably a good indication
    of how much room there is for price reductions over the next
    year or two.

    If you current motherboard supports an Athlon XP3000+, consider
    that upgrade. If not, then I suggest you wait until you can
    afford both a new motherboard and a new processor - and get
    an Athlon64 or AthlonFX combo.

    No, that board is for the new AMD 32/64-bit CPUs, like the AMD Athlon 64
    3200+. The Athlon 2000+ is a 32-bit CPU only and runs on the Socket-A
    (462) boards. Asus boards for the Socket-A start with "A7"...
    A7A133, A7A266, A7A266-E, A7M266-D, A7N266, A7N266-C, A7N266-E,
