    I would really recommend the Asus A7N8X. It offers a few more features. How much does that one cost? You might be able to find a better motherboard for your money..

    That shouldn't be too bad of a board if you are on a budget.I know where I am from that board goes for like 70.00 canadian,that is a pretty good price for a board that will run dual channel ddr 400 ram and has 8x agp etc. It's a decent starting point if you are on a budget.

    I would have saved some money and gotten a 2500XP, but very nice choice!
