If you plan on running only one video card, get a p5k

How are we supposed to recommend a motherboard when you've given no specific requirements?

That's only one. I meant all of them. Well, a LOT of old boards can do IDE/PATA/SATA, so your point?

The only option is X38, but there are a few brands. Now if you overclock, we can narrow it down to 1 or 2 choices.
