Default Motherboard fried. Help finding replacement.

My 2 y/o computers mobo has fried and I need help finding a replacement specific to what remains of the PC. It should be noted I am looking for a mobo/cpu combo as I don't feel like dealing with the old CPU.

AGP GeForce 6600
IDE DVD Burner
IDE HD
450W PSU



ASRock Motherboard - Product - K7Upgrade-880 - Overview

That is my current board.



Thanks!

its hard to find new combo deals with agp onboard. You interested in a newer style? The onboard video these days has gotten pretty good.

This will work:
Newegg.com - Open Box: PC CHIPS M848A (V5.0) 462(A) SiS 746FX ATX AMD Motherboard

with your old CPU.

I would get something new like this:
Newegg.com - Open Box: ASUS M3A78-EMH HDMI AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Brisbane 2.3GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core Processor - CPUs / Processors

and mabye some cheap ram.

But hey only $20 to get your old comp running.

The first board seems to be all you need.. only 19$

With the other boards.. I think your PC will do fine without them.

If I were you I would get an entire system upgrade... your computer is sooooo slow... wow, lol
