    It would help to say what OS you plan on using. has most of
    the drivers your need (if you click on drivers/chipsets).

    Also has drivers for the on-board Ethernet (if you get
    that option) and the AMD AC'97 sound link.

    The motherboard will accept the MP2800s also. I suggest you get the
    boxed processors (the ones that come with a 3-year warranty and include
    the CPU).

    You should use registered, ECC, PC2100 DDR memory. I suggest you use a
    real name brand like Kingston or PNY (people have had problems with
    Crucial, so you might want to stay away from them on this one). Most
    ECC/Registered modules only come in CAS2.5, but it really doesn't affect
    performance that much vs CAS2.

    I don't think you'll have any problems with a GeForce3, I am using a
    GeForce4 Ti4600 without issues.

    Good luck.

  4. If the card is made for PCI 3.3v, or 5v/3.3v, then yes. However, most
    PCI cards are 32-bit/5v.

    If you can get a glimpse of the picture of the card you want to get,
    compare it to the USB 2.0 card that comes with the "L" model of K7D

    Note the 2 notches. This board can be used in 64-bit or 32-bit slot.
    But I think it only works in 32-bit mode even in the 64-bit slot.
