Your mobo is a microATX socket 478.

This link will take you to all of the microATX 478 mobos at NewEgg:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...07&Order=price

I don't know Intel, but from where I am, the Gigabyte GA-8IG1000MK and the ASUS P4P800-VM look sweet. Both can handle up to 4 gig of RAM and support dual-channel.

The EPoX EP-4VKMI and the ASUS P4V8X-MX look good, but both can only handle 2 gig and have no dual-channel. Both of these offer built in SATA RAID.

All four of the boards I listed offer AGP 4X/8X.

your old motherboard had an onboard graphics card. the new one doesn't, but has AGP 4x/8x

Geforce FX-5200 AGP 8X - $39

yes, you will be fine. just as long as you can put it together right (or can get someone else to do it for you)

My mom works with a guy that does work on pc's, but he didnt have time to look up the motherboard, but he said he would charge me 25 $$ to reconnect a motherboard, does that price range sound good?
