I'd like to revive an old system (Palomino 2000+), but I can't find any Socket A motherboards anymore. Is there any chance of getting one nowdays?

Socket A production finished in 2005 so there's not much new stuff about now. The alternative is to try your luck in the secondhand market. But beware, many socket A boards were affected by the bad cap plague.

I built a system around a Barton 2600+. I got my motherboard from www.geeks.com for around $20 (FIC AU-13). I have also seen one on newegg, though i think they recently discontinued it. If that fails, check ebay; many of the sellers offer DOA protection.

Okay, so the one on newegg is with a geode processor, so nix that one. they have one left at www.geeks.com for 29.95 (SIS741GX-MN SiS 741Gx) and one on tigerdirect.com for 39.95 (PCChips M848A). Both are new and will handle pc2700 ram (the PCChips will handle up to pc3200), so you can maybe use both to overclock if you want. They both support up to 2gb ram and have an AGP 8x slot, though the one on geeks has integrated graphics. geeks' is micro and tigerdirect's is full. You should go check them out and compare.

I have the mentioned ASUS motherboard. Manual says it supports up to 2.25 GHZ. What is the fastest processor that I can use. I do not mind to under clock the processor. It might even save some heat and the actual performance degradation might not be that big.
