Default Need Motherboard Advice

My brothers motherboard went out and we need some advice on what to replace it with. He currently has a ASUS P4S800. What would be a good cheap board to replace it with? Thanks for any help.

About $20 cheaper than the one you have, but it is a really nice bored. I have used it and cannot complain about it at all!

He has a AGP video card and I don't think the one you posted had any AGP slots. Any other suggestions?

That may be a problem haha AGP is older, I can't think of any of the top of my head that have AGP. I'll look around google and newegg and see what I find.

If he already has the ASUS P4S800, why not order another one?

Nice find hemp, but it's sold out.


Any of these should work nicely: Geeks.com - Socket 478 P4 Motherboards

This is one of the only boards left in existence with socket478, AGP, and pc3200 ram slots. Otherwise you would have to buy new ram and a GPU with pci or pcix16 compatibility.
