hi all,

just fount out my mother board as short circuited thanks to some idiotic pc so called builders.

So can anyone recommend a really good mobo,
i do have to spend about 100 quid on one ive seen afew thats looks ok but just wondering if anyone knows of a bobby dazzler.
im looking for a socket a which will take upto a 2.4 proccesor, and at least 4 usb2.0 ports, 8x agp, and plenty of ddr memory.

all sugestions will be looked at.
if u can leave a link aswell makes my life much easier. :).

thanks stef

look for a nforce 2 chipset, i have seen them for about £80-£120.
they have 6 usb ports, fire wire, sata, support 333mhz fsb, 8xagp, 6 channel sound [and it is very good sound judging by all the reviews] and are really stable.

I've just bought myself an Abit NF7-S mobo. Its an nforce2 chipset as suggested by Gingepaul.

now returning this board for a second time.
Also in the same boat, looking for a different manufacturer for AMD re-build XP2200.

Will follow/watch this post with interest.
