Question New Motherboard

Recently my motherboard went out. I was wondering what kind of new one that I should get. I know that I have an Intel processor (not sure exactly what type) and that it has a Socket 478. I have the standard ports on the back so that shouldn't be a problem. It's a family computer and is mainly used for the internet and normal software. I was thinking about ordering from Tiger Direct. What kind should I get considering fairly good price with good quality that I don't have to worry about it doing this again. Thanks for the help.

most new motherboards will not work with a case for a socket 478-youll need a case and power supply to,

Yeah; it won't fit and will likely need more power - which is why a case and power supply will be needed. Maybe even a new Processor unless you can find an old motherboard.

as long as he has a ATX compatible case and a P4 ready PSU he should be fine
