[ubuntu] Which Mobo of These Should I Go For?

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have been using a Gigabyte GA-7N400S motherboard. Recently, one of the capacitors on it went bad and so I decided to buy a replacement/additional/spare board, second-hand, although I am going to re-cap the Gigabyte one. The new board I bought is an Esys/Foxconn (board says 'Esys'; Googling the model ID came up with 'Foxconn') P4M 800P7MB(-RS2H?). The Gigabyte board has an AMD Athlon XP 1800+ processor on it, along with 1 GB RAM. I have a spare AMD Athlon XP 2200+ processor I could fit into it instead (if it still works--currently in a board where all the caps went bad and the PSU blew), (Hardware)
