Default Advice needed

Hello everyone, I'm obviously new here but I've ran into a problem. I have a soyo sy-p4i865pe plus dragon 2 motherboard, in which doesn't work anymore. So I need to get a new motherboard for my computer. I don't have a lot of money to buy one of the newer ones that supports pci express because I'd have to upgrade so much of the computer and end up just having a whole new computer. So I can't afford that. I've done some searching and ran into the problem of finding somewhere that sells it. Do you guys know where I could buy one or one that would replace it and still be able to use my same hardware?

Thanks in advanced.

Good luck finding a mobo that supports agp that doesn't blow. - Open Box: MSI 945GCM478-L 478 Intel 945GC Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

AGP, but supports DDR2 RAM. You're kinda out of luck. Check ebay though.
