This is my personal favorite motherboard. Might be over-kill for what you need, and you'll need to order it from a different site seeing as how it doesn't ship outside the US.

{edit} We will need to know what ssc456 asked too because that could render my suggestion kinda useless.

but if you want a cheap board thats fairly upgradable and assuming your existing processor is socket 775 then this 1 will work fine http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...uct_uid=119045

if your lookin to spend a bit more then have a look at some of these

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/125082
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...uct_uid=129125
http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/126014

but the first 1 will handle a C2Q and 4 GB RAM so should be enough for atleast 4 years or so or even hold off till DDR3 is in mainstream and the prices drop

speed of ddr2 ram - 2x PNY 1GB DIMM DDR2 533Mhz PC4300 .

graphics card is - pci express.

i want a powerfull mobo quad duo features and everything and also should be able to upgrade further.

i like this because it can handle 32gb of ram , should last me a life time. what you all think yes or no ?

the prob aint your motherboard.

motherboards dont really contribute to computer performance all they do is hanlde the parts u put in them

the motherboard u have is not the problem its prob the old P4 doin the slow down u could prob do wiv upgrading you processor to a C2D and the RAM is a little slow u could do wiv 2GB of 800Mhz but not sure if its worth replacing the old 2GB for the little increase ?

as it is at the mo the processor prob cant use all the RAM so def a CPU upgrade but in general how clean is your comp ?

what anti virus u got on it ? wot anti spyware u got ? anti adware ?
