yea.... i forgot to mention.. you may wont to look for a different motherboard since you plan on getter a new one...

because you may run into compatability issues with a aftermarket GFX card since that Board usess a SIS Chipset.

for socket 478, stick with (nforce chipsets) (Intell chipset's) or (VIA chipsets)

everywere apears to be very limited in 478 boads(for good reason lol).

but heres a MSI VIA AGP 8x http://www.ewiz.com/detail.php?name=MB-PM8M-V

EDIT: i havnt, but you can also try searching around at for example:
www.pricegrabber.com
www.resellerratings.com


EDIT: and remember, whenever you do get it setup, remember to go into BIOS settings and Disable the Onboard Video befor installing your Graphics card. (or you can install your GFX card from the start, and on First boot, go into BIOS and Disable Onboard Graphics Display adapter).

It may have an option to enable or disable onboard display adapter
or it may just have a option to switch primary display from Onboard/to AGP.

the majority of MicroATX motherboad come with Onboard display, and if you need a MicroATX board, there may be no other option.
