I need a new motherboard, but I'm not sure who to go with. I need something that could support a dvd rw drive, standard floppy, 2-3 Gigs of DDR 3200 RAM. AMD Athlon XP processor, Standard 40 gig HDD, and one slot for my Ethernet card, and a GeForce 4 4400 Ti 128 MB DDR.

Need serious recommendations.

Thanks.

Personally... I like Asus, ABit, DFI Lanparty boards... they tend to be pretty nice for the price... and should be more too. Giga-byte is ok, MSI is ok... but the first 3 are my favorites... you'll rarely have trouble with them.

Chipsets
North Bridge NVIDIA nForce2 Ultra 400
South Bridge NVIDIA nForce2 MCP-T

Whats that?

Also would a ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe ATX AMD Motherboard support my video card and processor?

Make sure the number of sockets match between your processor and the new motherboard.

Do NOT get the A7N8X-E Deluxe board, get the A7N8X Deluxe board, as the "E" model is for PCI-Express cards only, which your card isn't.

Incorrect. Here is a link to asus's site. It shows an agp slot. Link

BTW this is an excellent board for an amd build. I like either asus or soltek for amd builds. I would go with the nforce chipset as it is less problem prone than the via chipset, however both will work.

Well I'm kind of a nub, I just need someone to tell me if my AMD Athlon Xp 2200 1.8 Ghz cpu will fit, and my GeForce 4 4400 128 MB.

Thank you. I'm going to buy that board now, unless anyone has any objections to it?

Also, I think I'm getting a gig of RAM and new processor.
