Hi all,

as some of you may know I have recently just upgraded my 533 478 pin processor to a P4 3.06 HT Northwood, at teh same time I decided to upgrade my ram from 256md to 512mb 184pin ddr 2700.

Not a bad bit of kit now condiering it was a celeron 2.8!

Am running a FX5200 graphics card on the Pci port, unfortunately the motherboard doesnt have an AGP slot! So as you can probably see, I've now got somthing of a bottle neck going on!

My motherboards is Intel D845GVSR, installed in a emachines (pcworld :( ) 3210 tower. I think the tower is a mini is fairly compact.

Being a bti of a newb when it comes to pcs, I a lkooking for seom advice as to which motherboard to go for? Which will fit my current case, adn be 100% compatible with my other bits n bobs.

Would also like to take the plunge and get a motherboard with a pci-e graphics slot, although I know this may be a problem due to myprocessor, agp would suffice.

I would appeciate it if someone could recommend a good motherboard compatible with all the above criteria.

A linky to where I can purchase would be superb!

Many thanks! :)

im pretty sure that PCI-E is only available on the new intel chips, but AGP is still decent

it seems not many people still stock 478Pin boards :( , i think the P4P800-X will fit but i'd recomend you measure the old motherboard before you order it, the board is 12" by 8.2" or 30.5cm by 20.8 cm

After some intiall head scratching, just orderd an ASUS P4s58X-MX from e-components.com, £37.00 deliverd.

Now onto a graphics card!
