Post What MoBO should i get?

OK i need a new mobo for my build

Here are my specs:
(1x) 512mb ram DDR 400
(1x) 256mb ram DDR 400
Pentium 4 prescott Socket775 @3.2 Ghz
6800gs (agp version)

So if u read my specs above carefully u would notice that i need an AGP slot mobo with DDR memory and P4 Prescott socket 775 support

Edit:
BTW, wat is a good MoBo company?

Thanks,
Alexsabree

what was wrong with your old mobo?

i suggest you get a stick of 512mb and have 2X512 so you can have dual channel.


as for brands.. well.. all mobo companies make good and bad mobos.. brand won't necesarily tell you if its good or not... if its something low end like this i'd get something with good newegg ratings.. that way you know its not an iffy board.

Looks like this is your best bet. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136156

There's also an Asus and MSI that I would consider.

Thats a micro atx board. I'd go with a regular ATX.

i have already looked at neweggs boards, but they just dont have enough that fit my specs. But im sorta leaning to a micro, since thats all i can find.

BTW: Do u really think that that DFI board is worth it? Arent they all teh same?
