What are the early signs of a Motherboard going bad?

If it is the motherboard (Am I correct in assuming that I will need to
shell out $200 or more for a full xp sp2 retail).

$200 I could buy a cheap dell legally.

One way is to check the capacitors http://tinyurl.com/9xbxu

look for puffy tops, leaking, or pop'd ones - if you find any it's
time to upgrade.
