BYO-Computer: Is this mother board worth the $16?
 
I've been toying with the idea of building a computer to goof around with and have been picking up pieces as I find good deals. I already have a 20 G drive, the networking card, wireless mouse and keyboard, and a monitor. Found them all for very decent prices.

So here's my question: is this a good motherboard?

PC Chips M900 Intel 850 Socket 423 ATX Motherboard</center>

(I'm thinking of getting this case (that's over in the Hot Deals area now) to put it in...)

It only supports up to 2GHz processors and requires RDRAM.

You may find the cost of the RDRAM will eat up the difference in price between a newer board that can take SDRAM and the SDRAM.

Whoops, missed that. That and it takes fake "chips" if your slots aren't all full. $285 for a 512 stick of 184pin Rambus crap.

Nevermind... but I think I'll still get the case. ;)

Aren't all motherboards that use RDRAM like that?
