    the Shuttle AK32A Motherboard will let you use all your old stuff and it will let you upgrade to DDR memory later on(it has 2 sdram slots & two DDR slots- it's either or when used-not both.

    You can get this mobo with an Atlon XP 1800 at Tigerdirect.com for $129.00

    Since your graphics are integrated you'll need a new video card too.

    I recommend the abit siluro mx440 64mb ddr @65.00 at googlegear.com. they also have less expensive video cards if you don't wat to spend too much.
