I'm just looking to see if anyone could give me a good recommendation for a motherboard?

I need one that will work with a P4 HT 524 (3.06 Ghz, 533Mhz FSB, LGA775) and have a PCI-E(x16) slot. Also DDR support would be great but not necessary. The only chipsets that I know of to support this are Intel 915G/P, SiS 656 and Via PT880 Pro.

The reason I'm asking is that my current motherboard does not have a PCI-E slot and I need a GPU upgrade badly. I also can't afford to do a processor swap because the motherboard, PSU and videocard is already too much. I'm just hoping I can find one of these old a$$ mobo's for cheap.

Well according to the compatibility list my processor is supported but my processor rated FSB speed is 533 Mhz and the board is rated for 1333/1066/800 MHz FSB so how could it work?

If it's on the list of supported CPUs, then it will work. If it can handle a FSB of 1066 MHz, then it can certainly handle a FSB of 533 MHz. The base frequency is 266.66 MHz:

266.66 * 2 = 533
266.66 * 3 = 800
266.66 * 4 = 1066
266.66 * 5 = 1333

They are easy to find in North America.

There are a few other motherboards that support the 524 (search the CPU support list at Asus, Gigabyte and others):

Asus ASUS P5Q SE PLUS
Asus ASUS P5QPL-VM
Asus P5B-VM SE

GIGABYTE GA-G41M-ES2L
GIGABYTE GA-EG41M-US2H
