How much money are you willing to spend?
Is there a particular brand name you are interested in?
Are you a gamer?

After looking up the advent 3618 system I can see aditional data:


Your board will also need to spuort DDR400 RAM if you intend on reuseing your existing memory.

Well all PCI-e AMD motherboards support DDR400 and in fact all of the AGP A64 compatible boards ive seen are DDR400 so that not going to be a problem.

What you are looking for is a socket 754 AMD motherboard with PCI-e basically the rest of what you want is pretty much standard. Was looking for info on the abit 754 pci-e board and was reading a review on custom pc and they reccomend this http://www.custompc....5/abit-nv8.html as the best one they reviewes and reading what is available that seems as good a choice as any.

From what i gather there is also an MSI 754 mobo using the nforce 3 chipset.
