What RAM do you have? If you want to re-use the RAM you have knowing what RAM you have will help in choosing a good motherboard.

Without knowing what memory that you have I can't suggest a replacement motherboard that will use your old RAM. Chances are that your old RAM won't work in many of the newer motherboards. So, I've picked out an inexpensive, but solid, motherboard, CPU and RAM combination for you. At the time I posted this, the shipping for the continental US for these items totals $0.99. So the cost of the parts is the primary expense, totaling about $220.00 plus tax and $0.99 shipping.

ASUS M4A78LT-M AM3 AMD 760G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz CPU

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333

[edit]
A 6 core, and costing more:


AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz

Yes, the ASUS M4A78LT-M AM3 motherboard will work with that 6 core CPU.
