Ok i really dont know much about motherboards. To me a mobo is a mobo. Basically i need a motherboard that will work with my setup so i can just throw the new mobo in my case and everything will just go in place.
1.PCI-E for Radeon x700
2.DDR 400 (PC3200) I have 2 512 Sticks
3.Hyper-Threading Technology
4.Serial ATA Connections
5.Socket 775

Just got to Newegg.com and search for socket 775 mobos. They will include a description of all of the available connections.

I would go with a 965 or 975X socket mobo(for upgradability these mobos support core 2 duo and should support intel quad core when its released at the end of the year), as long sa its a big brand name board like Asus or Abit youll usually be fine youll be looking at spending about $100-150 for something better than your current board.
