Default Mobo shopping of a different kind. Advice?

Alright so i need 2 of the same thing. I need a good Socket A board, and a good Socket 939 board. Problem? They both need to be mATX and need to fit that nice green little Aspire box. I want good brands guys. Both need AGP as well. If you need to know anything else just let me know.

One for me and one for my gf. Were getting identical cases except different color schemes. She will have my old socket A system except the board and i will have pretty much my current LAN rig cept the board. We will be going to many LAN parties together, so this will be cool. I want good stuff.

THats been discussed before already many times. She likes to game, do CSS and HTML ect ect yes. I need these motherboards though. Help please.
EDIT: Also, you might want to stop liening about that system. You cant put DDR2 on a S939 system.

Ok so is the Asus board any good? It has a Via chipset instead of an nForce. (continuing convo from mark). Really i need AGP on the SocketA system more.
Ok Mark i found this board what do you think?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813185053
It has support for 8X AGP, DDR333, and support for a Sepmpron processor.

If you just want a basic mobo (no OCing, No raid or sata) than that board is fine. I have used a bunch and never had a prob.

Now its hard to find a Nforce with a AGP in a Micro mobo. Thats why in my new Build CrossFlow I am using a Full size DFI Expert mobo in my Qpack case.

It can fit a full size mobo? It says Micro ATX so thats why i was looking for the 2 mATX boards.
