Currently my system consist of orignal i845 GVSR mobo with a Intel PGA 468 socket 2.8 processor ,256MB of RAM,40 gb PATA HDD with on board graphics but in today's context I am not able to cop up with new softwares and planning to change my mobo (i know this will only cause a little of performance increase but will be buying a brand new dual core machine after 6 months).Dear frnds plz suggest me a mobo with keeping following features in mind
1.Support's Intel PGA 468 socket 2.8 processor.
2.AGP 8x slot
5.Onboard Graphics and LAN

john3 did you even read what he posted?

i don't see why you want to upgrade your current motherboard, does it not have an AGP 4x/8x slot?
