Default need motherboard

i have a P4C northwood 533mhz 2.8ghz .13mc CPU
and im looking for a mobo:
micro-atx
pci express
pref no onboard video
DDR2 compatible
socket 478

does it even exists in thsi configuration?
i looked on newegg and asus homepage and i found this config for LGA775 socket but not for 478

or should i give up my 478 processor and go for 775?
im kinda on a tight budget but i just cant have slowass system

gow wiht pci express. DDR 2 isnt in demnad right now. All the hihg end gaming systems usually use AMD, and all AMD bords support normal 184 pin DDR ram. So if those comps are goodwith the ram they have then you will be good. I'd rather havea pci express videocard and normal ddr 400 ram, than an agp videocard and ddr2 ram.

Don't get DDR2, I don't even think it's compatible with your CPU. The ASROCK is your best bet.
