Default Help Me Pick Mobo

Hey everyone
I've finally taken your advice and I'm getting a new mobo (then a new vid card)

I'm looking at this right now:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...4875&CatId=188

That seems like a really good deal, and I am strongly considering ordering it.

But I would like the opinion of those who know more than me. Is that a good mobo? Or should I get something else?

I'd like a motherboard with a x8 AGP, DDR-Ram supported (upwards of 1gb supported, if possible) and with/compatible with (at least) a 1.9ghz+ processor.

Thanks for any help

Yeah; its good. Chaintech is a good make.

Have you made sure the Socket on the new Motherboard will fit your current Processor?

I wouldnt recommend that setup unless it is chosen for price reasons. Just because the processor is old and the board is a mini.

Also its not that great of a price either. Its about the same price as if you bought everything seperately.
