Default Socket A to blow its brains out in March

AFTER YEARS of loving socket A platform, it's time to say goodbye to all those nice chipsets and motherboards based on it. AMD decided to pull the plug on this one simply as it wants to make a big deal out of the Socket 754.

AXP will be available on 2nd hand market for some time still, picking up XP2500+ won't be much a problem

will provide quite a boost compared to your current XP1800+
