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.

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.

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.

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