So if that motherboard works fine, why does it cost half as much as all the other ones reccomended?

It looks great to me. Sorry I overlooked that. Plus, it's only 60 bucks. Can't beat that if it functions fine.

Well, AGP is older than PCI-E, so that could be part of it. I think it's a perfectly good board, though. You'll be able to use a nice new processor and still keep your graphics card. Plus you've got room in your budget if you need to get some new RAM or something.

That doesn't have AGP either, does it? Ugh...
i suggested the MSI K8N NEO2 not neo4. Which has AGP and is one of the best OC'ing mobo's with AGP
