Default AMD Chipset matches??!?

A friend that I'm rebuilding his comp, has an old ECS board, that has the 735 amd Socket A chipset. I am getting him a new PC CHips board, just to tide him over till he pays off his laptop, and its the 746FX chipset, which i read is pretty new. Will this affect anything, or do i have to buy him the same crappy board he had before?

You just have to make sure that its the same socket. AFAIK, the 746FX doesnt support Athlon XPs.
