Can anyone suggest a motherboard?

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.

  1. What's your budget? If DDR support isn't necessary, then this inexpensive motherboard might meet your requirements: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128388
  2. gigabyte makes good stuff imo dont have one atm but i might have to lol
  3. 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
  5. Alright cool, that sounds good then! Now I just need to find one.

    Thanks for the help.
  6. 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
