Hey everyone, I have a friend that is wanting to get a new motherboard. He is upgrading his processor and the motherboard he has now will not support it. So without having to replace everything this is what he is looking for: a new motherboard that is compatible with DDR2 memory (up to 4 GB), has an onboard video card, that will support a Pentium D 3.4 GHz Hyperthreading processor, ATX (guess that should have been first sorry) and it doesn't matter if the video card slot is AGP or PCI Express. Now he only wants to spend between $80-$100. Can anyone suggest anything? I've checked tigerdirect.com, and newegg and haven't been able to find what I'm looking for. Maybe I overlooked something? Thanks in advance! :whistling:

You may be able to get a BIOS update for the current board that will talk to the new processor. Have you looked into that?
