Thanks for your input trotter, but I have a question though ?
My budget for the other parts will be limited to atleast 100 dollars to christmas eve.
I found this Biostar motherboard that has the features I am looking for, I like the gigabyte mobo alot but I don't think my mother would let me spend that kind of money on it.
Yes, she is quite worried and uptight about money that flows through the house these days

Also I plan on getting this heatsink for my cpu when I purchase a motherboard, it is somehow similiar to my old LGA 775 masscool heatsink but should get the job done nicely.

Last I am getting ram for my old setup that is posted in my profile, while she is at work one of these days she will be getting my mobo cpu and ram wether she likes it or not when I get the money I need.
She thinks her dell is super quick but I had to prove her wrong on a number of ocassions where she had 3 IE8's windows going on MS word and the **** thing defragging in the BG.
