Re: AMD Motherboard?
Those would both work together and MSI is a good brand (especially that mobo). The motherboard comes with LAN but I'd recommend getting hold of a cheap Sound Blaster Audigy (almost as good as audigy 2, trust me I've had both).
Asus A7N8X Deluxe - Rev 2.0 - Bios Ver. 1007
AMD Athlon XP-M 2200+ - @ 11x188 = 2Ghz (1.75Vcore)
ATi Radeon 9700 Pro (Almost as good as my old 5950U!)
Corsair 512MB XMS TwinX Low Latency DDR 400 - @ 188Mhz
