The P5KPL-C has failed so needs to be replaced, seemingly no longer available. Since I use a floppy drive a lot, lots of data and short programs on floppies, I need to find a motherboard the has provision for a floppy drive as well as DVD and multiple HDD, 6 USB ports (all my periferals are USB connected), 6 SATA ports for HDD, (I run 4 HDDs).

The computer is NOT USED FOR GAMES so does not need top speed.

You can get floppy drives that connect via USB cable, no need to get a motherboard with a floppy socket. I've had one for about five years now, but I only use it about once a year.

Thanks guys, the comments were very useful. Got an Asus P8B75-MLX board, apart from limited SATA sockets, it seems OK, and as first sold 2012 should last a few years. Will follow up on the portable floppy drive.

Once again, thanks for your replies.

Cheers

But I did have to buy SATA DVDs, an extra $34.00. Such is the cost of technological progress.
