I'm not really familiar with AMD chips, but a search on EBuyer came up with this. Seems like a good chip, and is within your price range.

Not found a good boad yet but will keep looking and post back if i find one

About the ram, you should wait til you pick a cpu, then you can pick some ram with a clock speed the same as the cpu clock speed

Looks pretty good. I would say go for a little more quality if you want to spend it.

ok ive decided what i want to get but i was just wondering if someone can please check over it all to make sure everything is compatible, thanks

btw iam running windows 98se

AMD Athlon XP2400 266 FSB 256 Cache Thoroughbred - Retail Boxed Inc Heatsink & Fan with 3year Warranty

PC Chips Syntax SKT A AGP Via KT266 DDR/SDR ATA 133 Sound/LAN/USB 2.0 Retail Box

as for the RAM i currently have sdram pc100, and im not sure which brand it is(no brand shows up in cpu-z) so i do no know whehter this RAM will be compatible, as apparently only reliable sdram will work with the mobo, so please can somebodt recommend some RAM that will work with the mobo and processor well.
