    Hi im looking for a motherboard for my P4 2.8C and i would like a motherboard without onboard gfx and one that doesn't support SATA and i have 70quid MAX

    p.s.
    i had an Asus P4s800 but it had duff IDE channels so i don't want another.

    thanks

    You could try the EPOX EP-4PCA3+, gets good reviews and is about 134$ at Newegg. I personally always buy ASUS mobo's, they have always been rock solid for me.

    one question..........if i was to buy a dual DDR motherboard does that mean i have to use the modules in groups of two? i only have one module at the moment.

    Thanks

    that was probably because oof the SiS chipset. generally it's a good idea to stay away from those. for p4, stick to intel's 865 and 875.

    one module will work fine. but two (preferably identical) will give you a performance increase.

    Asus P4G800-V (ATX)
    Asus P4G800-VM (mATX)
    Gigabyte GA-8IG1000 (Rev 2.0)

    UGH... i just realized you said without onboard graphics..!
