Having Trouble Finding a new motherboard

My motherboard on my computer recently went out due to blown capacitor caps.....My computer is relatively old so it's been a little bit difficult finding a new motherboard to replace my ruined one. Here are the parts I own

AMD AthlonXP 3200+ processor

184-Pin DDR400 (PC3200) RAM 2x 1GB (2 GB total)

Nvidia 7800 GT video card

500 watt power supply

If anybody could point me in the right direction for finding a replacment motherboard I would surely appreciate it.

Also, are there any parts do you think I should probably upgrade while I'm at it? I really will only be playing source games but I know some of these parts are about 5 years old.

  1. It's PCIe
  2. So is your athlon an athlon64 3200+ as socket 939 CPU or possibly socket 754? I do not think they made any socket A boards for PCIe cards.
  3. its an AMD athlonXP 3200+ and upon searching I read that Athlon XP 3200+ is the fastest AMD processor for socket A (462).

    Also, I know that I have 2 PCI-E slots on the motherboard and when I search it says that socket A mobo's and PCI-E motherboards do not exist. This is not making any sense to me.
  4. What motherboard where you using before?
  5. it was an EVGA Nforce board of some kind
  6. I might be wrong but I do not think that EVGA ever produced a socket A motherboard. They got into motherboard manufacturing in 2005 http://www.evga.com/about/pressrelease/20050106-1.asp During the socket 939 time.

    My processor just says AMD Athlon 64 on it.

    Ok but my graphics card is a 7800GT which requires a PCI-E slot and this has been hard to come by. A socket 939 mobo with a PCI-E slot.

    I've been doing a lot of searching and have come across this mobo that I believe may work. I just wanted to get a second opinion on it though. http://3btech.net/as93so939maw4.html

    That board will work but any board with nforce4 chipset will as well.
