Question 478 Motherboard Suggestions

I'm going nuts looking for a new motherboard. I know most of you use AMD, but you may be more knowledgeable in better brands.

Here's what I'm looking for:
Socket 478
Supports PC3200
SATA
AGP 8x
Full ATX
* the CPU bracket 1/2 inch or more away from the top. This is for my Zalman HSF

There are soo many differen't ones, I've looked at DFI, Asus, Abit, and Gigabyte.

The only problem is that I'd like to keep it under $100, and yes I will be OCing.

thanks for your time and help.
-Joe

It's a little more than $100, it's actually $117 at newegg, but the P4P800-E Deluxe is a monster of a MB. You won't be disappointed with it.

That is a good one, but I passed it up because the bracket is too close to the edge, and because of the price. Thank you thou

Well if your going to OC, your going to need a Abit or DFI mobo. Those brands are ideal for OC. They are MADE for it. Asus mobo's are also made for OC, depending on the mobo. MSI arent really flexible for OC, but they are a great brand. Gigabyte arent good for OC, even without OC i wouldent get a Gigabyte.

Here is a good mobo for OC. It also comes with Abits special OC software. You know its Guru control.
