Question Motherboard

Looking at replacing my motherboard as i am into inline game playing.
I want to add a good graphics card yet i have no APG slot(s) on my motherboard at present.

I have an Intel Celeron 2.6Ghz processor with 768 MBDDR RAM can anyone suggest a motherboard that would be compatable with this processor, have around 100 to spend.

Cheers to anyone that can help

Cool, thanks for that guys.. Could you reccommend me a grfx card too?
Suppose a budget of around 130-150
If there is minimal difference between one for 150 and one for 110 i would rather the 110 one..
any suggestions?
