  1. In my personal opinion, it's this board:

    I used to have one. I recently upgraded to an AMD dual core processor; I sold the MSI board on eBay and damn near got $100 for it on eBay. No joke.

  2. I'd recommend looking at socket 478 boards with Intel 865PE chipset - personally I've had two MSI Neo-2S boards and are very happy with them - stable as a rock. Also had a Gigabyte board that is equally good.
  3. i'd recommend going for something with PCI-E since you need a new mobo anyway. Don't go for AGP. you'll get screwed with a 7800gs :roll:


    i believe asus has 3 different pci-e mobos,
    here is one i got:

    However, if you need more than 2 dimms of ram you might want to choose a different model.
  4. check this one out I am using it with my 3.4 northwood and it ROCKS. got a 650 tv tuner card from ATI does all my tv and recording.
