    No overclocking, etc. As long as it has a couple of ide's and AGP video.

    Yeah, that's not a bad motherboard. I would try and find one with an Intel chipset if possible, but considering there are so few options, you will probably be stuck with a SiS or Via.

    Well Intel made the 865pe motherboards.

    Zipzoomfly has some of them, but they're around a hundred bucks.

    Thanks Emmet. Reviews look mixed. I'll keep it in mind but does anything else exist for a little more $$?
    I forgot to add I do want 4 RAM slots. Most other ones I see only have 2.

    Here ya go. I love Gigabyte, and I trust Ewiz completely.

    Four memory slots, 8x USB 2.0, agp 8x, 8 channel audio,
    and it even has two sata connectors.

    (plus, it appears to be in stock :hs: )

    $71 plus s&h.

    thanks again Emmet. I'd rather pay a few $ more for that gigabyte.
