I have two AMD Atlon MP 1800 and now I'm looking for a motherboard that they will fit on but also can take 1 Gig ram at DDR 3200.

Anyone know of any motherboards that will take this?

1GB of memory is not a problem, any dual-Socket A motherboard out there should be able to support this.
However, as the only dual-Socket A chipset, the AMD-760MPX will only support memory-speeds up to PC2100/DDR266, running your memory at PC3200 speeds is NOT an option with a dual Socket A setup.

Since ALL Athlon MP's run at a 133/266MHz FSB, there wouldn't be much of a gain in performance, anyways.
PC3200 DDR-SDRAM is fully backward-compatible and will run at PC2100 speeds without you can use it on a dual Socket A board(make sure you manually set your memory frequency to 133MHz, tho).
