Default Will this mobo work? and if not what will!

Hello, I'm kind of a noob when it comes to computer's and I was wondering if this mobo would work for my system.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188005

Also if anyone has input on this mobo or a better idea for a mobo I would really like the advise. My spending price is around 50-100$.

My system specs are:

Radeon 9800XT
2# Samsung 512mb DDR
Western Digital 80g (harddrive)
AMD sempron 3100+


My old mobo ( Asus K8V-MX ) didn't work with my video card cus it had a VIA chipset and I would crash in games and it was a mini mobo which kinda sucked.

Also I was looking at the mobo and it dont have a PCI express slot which I might want for later on. DO mobo's come with PCI express and AGP ?

Some actually do, but not too many, you'll have to read the specs to be sure!

I would just get a MoBo with PCI-E and forget about AGP, buy a low end PCI-E vid card now, and upgrade to a higher end PCI-E card when you have the money later. -- this is much better then having an AGP card!

Yes, that MoBo should be ok.

But why buy a new PC? you can slowly put one together by upgrading parts and save yourself some money.
