Motherboard

I have an old eMachines T2245 thats needs some help.

it has a motherboard with NO AGP SLOT!!. I am looking for a new motherboard that has an AGP slot and supports a P4 Celeron 2.2GHz 400fsb, but dont know exactly what to look for b/c i am an AMD fanboy.

what would be the best motherboard for that system. its a mini-ATX case.

links would be great and i am also in the US.

If their aren't proprietary Front Panel connections on the present m'board, the Asus P4P800-VM Micro ATX mainboard looks good to me. At Newegg, naturally.

Too right! I've had good luck with Asus, 7 out of 7 have worked well. There's always a first, so I don't expect a perfect record. Sigh.

My Asus P4S800-MX only cost me $65(AUD) which is friggin cheap and i think is great Im running a Cele D 2.4ghz with Kingston ram.

If you want anymore info on it i suppose you could go to asus site or i could probably get it quickly out of the manual.

EDIT: Here's link to mobo on asus site - http://www.asus.com/products4.aspx?m...=3&l2=12&l3=42

That particular ASUS SIS chipset board has been a favourite of mine for a long time now. I have found it to be a very reliable, although crappy board, and have used it in 20 odd celeron and northwood builds. Only 1 came back and it had a defective AGP slot that came loose from hanging a GFFX 5800U off it.

All in all Ive had a good run with them. I pay $47 for them in lots of 5 (australian dollars) from Gamedude ($58 retail) http://www.gamedude.com.au/prod_show...o=mbASp4s800mx

Avoid this one at all costs though http://www.gamedude.com.au/prod_show...o=mbASp4s55fx2

I can buy that asrock for $27 each in lots of 5, and seriously, a motherboard that costs less than a bottle of jim beam usually sucks.
