    What is your plan with this PC? Judging from the 1gb of memory and x1300, it's not going to be a hard-core gaming rig, but do you plan on overclocking? Is this a word processing/web browser? Light gaming?

    Need more info on what you expect for performance, what your plans on overclocking are, what features you may want or dislike, etc.

    I still am enjoying my Asus P5B Deluxe, it's a P965 based MB, there are many out there. There's also newer chipsets from both NV and Intel that could treat you well. Do you plan on going full ATX or mATX? Do you need a lot of fan headers for case/heatsink fans? Do you want a board that is very upgradable (4 dimms, 2x pci-e x16 slots, multiple pci-e 1x/4x slots, pci 1.1 slots, etc...)???

    You should research what you want, find out what you need/require, etc, this will go a long ways in helping your decision for purchase. We can recommend mobo's till we're blue in the face, but in the end it's your decisions and money that will be getting a board, so make sure you do the research to make the right decisions on your side.

    I'd find a deal on a good P965 mb, like a Gigabyte DS3, or Asus P5B basic, MSI has a board too. Since P33/35/38's are being released, I'm sure you can find a good deal on a p965 board that isn't old and yet useful for your needs. Maybe check the FS/FT section of this forum to see if someone is selling a LGA775/DDR2/PCI-e board at a good price.

    Yeah, that would be just fine, plus it's a P35 so it features some newer technology than what I recommended.
