did you check to see if your new bits were compatible, because mobo's dont like uncompatible stuff. you'll probable find that you've over clocked your board and its now toast.

when you buy your new mobo, make sure it will take at least AMD XP3000+, and make sure the ddr ram slots are backwards compatible.

may i sugest somthing like:
