well they are gettin pretty long in the tooth now, but the ASUS P4P800 SE does a good job. Its the 865 chipset. I can only really comment on this one as I use it currently.

I'm using the Abit AS-7 that I got off newegg for $87 I think. I like it. If you want to overclock, I hear it's not the best board to get, but I bought a p4 3.0c w/ h/t so I don't really need to...

Anyway, thats my two cents.

Hmm ive only seen one that ahs PCI-E but according to another thread we determined it dosent support the new PCI-E cards. Best bet is to upgrade to LGA775 man.

im not sure 478 boards have PCI-E, i think you will have to go up to the next range of boards as P. P. Mguire said.
