I've heard good things about the AMD 761 chipset boards: very stable although slight drop in performance from VIA KT266A. A good economical board is the Epox EP-8K7A.
Another possibility is the Leadtek 7350KDA which uses the SIS 735 chipset (like the ECS K7S5A).
However, both of the above require DDR memory chips.
The ECS K7S5A board is a very good value with its onboard LAN and SDRAM and DDRAM capabilities at a price of $52....if you get one that works. I've read many horror stories about experienced computer builders who have had problems galore. However, I'm one of the lucky ones who got 2 good boards that work great...and one of them has a 900 Tbird in a CompUSA 300W ATX case (non-AMD recommended power supply).
