    Hi everyone,

    I'm in the market for a new motherboard and was just wondering which one you guys would get. Let's say that money is no object and that it must have 2 IDE slots (up to 4 IDE devices), be AGP 8x compliant, support at least 4 gig ddr ram, and USB 2.0. I'm not so much concerned about having PCI express at this point. I should probably include that I will be upgrading from an ECS P4S5A mobo. It will need to be Intel Pentium compliant, 3.4ghz or above (when the time comes). Onboard sound or video are not necessary. OC'ing is not necessary, just a stable board would be better to me. Thanks in advance and just let me know if any more information is required.

    So I should probably just wait until the socket 775 processors are out? Thanks for the replies everyone.

    socket 775 chips and motherboards are out. You might want to wait till PCIe video cards are out if you want to go that way otherwise you can find some that have an agp slot
