Check out newegg.com they allow you to compare other boards at the same time.

what type of hard drive and optical drives you using? PIDE or SATA? Also how many of each do you have?

Do you have a stand alone video card or on built on to the Motherboard?

Also what type of RAM do you have? DDR DDR2 etc.

These are just somethings to think about when selecting a MOBO, might have to also upgrade a few other things at the same time due to compatibility issues.

Why would you upgrade the MOBO without upgrading the chip?

Try this out:

http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?inv...X-PB-R&cat=MBB

they also have 5 other 775 boards. This place is way cheaper than most sites even newegg. They have older boards that may be closer to what you need. If you want more power it will handle 2 & 4 processor chips as well! Here is a duo core processor if you want more git up & go!
