Oh well, 750MHz is a bit slow these days (though it was fast not so long 
ago ;), so I don't know how much that will impact things. Actually, 
unless there is a good reason for it, the AMD Sempron motherboards can 
be obtained cheap these days (at least in the US). They run fast, and 
even (relatively) cool and quietly. I highly recommend them unless you 
really have a strong need for maximum processing power. If your disc 
drive is from the 750MHz era, spend the extra money to replace that too.
