I'm currently looking at Asus's P65UP5 (not the one above). Has anyone
had favourable experiences with this motherboard? - it's a dual
processor system capable of taking processor cards (either Pentiums or
Pentium Pros) - how much can I expect to shell out for this, and for the
CPUs? (I've been stuck long enough with a 486DX/100 for 3 years now!) I
like this system primarily because I can carry over my 72pin SIMMs and
it has 8 slots.
