Default New mobo suggestions?

I need a new mobo. I have 100 bucks to spend. I can do a little more if it calls for it but I'd prefer not to. My old mobo in my sig died on me, I need something else. I have a 478 P4 Prescott 3.0Ghz. I thought about getting my same mobo again, but I just thought I see if someone knew anything better.

Dell E1705
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz T7200
2GB DDR2 667MHz
80GB 5400RPM HDD
256MB nVidia 7900 GeForce Go

Uck... hmm maybe it's time to upgrade?

Well just newegg a s478 board and see how cheap one that's ok is. I'd reccomend buying a cheap board and saving up for an overhaul.

I dunno enuf about intel's to give a suggestion.

Asus i865 and i875 chipset-mobos for skt478 are usually really good. They've been the choice of overclocking for skt478, due to their high quality and flexibility.

I've used one of each chipset for builds, but i865 chipsets are pretty well all that's left to choose.

So, I recommend this one: ASUS P4P800SE Socket 478 Intel 865PE ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail for $93.50.
