Yea, I can't find any current motherboards that take RDRAM memory. Your best bet would be to get something like the BIOSTAR P4M80-M4 Socket 478 VIA P4M800 and either Kingston ValueRAM 512MB (2 x 256MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 or pqi POWER Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 depending on how much memory you want.
Other than that, maybe a whole new computer build is in your near future.

Default Re: Is my Motherboard dead?

I looked on Ebay but the one I have is going for $300 and its like 5 years old! Grrr. My CPU is "Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHZ 512K L2 Cache 533 MHZ FSB" and my memory is "(2) 256MB RDRAM PC800". I dont mind having to buy new memory because I heard my memory is not common any more. But the MOBO has to have AGP 8X becuase I got a new Graphics card 2 years ago and its AGP 8X. Thanks for your help!

The ASUS P4T533-C motherboard you currently have is an AGP 4X motherboard so your video should work in the board I linked to.

Wouldnt it be better though to get an AGP 8x because thats what my graphics card is? I dont mind spending like $100 I just want a fast one that works. But im a newbie at computers so I have no idea what to look for. Also why is the Asus P4T533-C so EXPENSIVE! its 4-5 years old?! and its going for $285! WOAH

Well, if you don't mind spending $100 or so, look into getting the Biostar motherboard and DDR memory I linked to. That will be plenty fast and fully support your AGP 8X video card.
