I already have all my parts except my mobo I had to get it replaced but instead they refunded me my money so I was wondering what is the best bang for my buck motherboard my limit is 120$

The parts I have are:
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 3000+
Graphix: CHAINTECH Geforce FX5500
RAM: CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (1 Stick)
Power Supply: THERMALTAKE Silent PurePower 420W

I am looking at the ASUS A8V DELUXE Socket 939

Get that one, the only bad thing about your system is the gfx card you would have a better choice of you had pci-e, but you cant have everything.

Yes, but thats because agp prices have been dropped to clear the back stock of cards, pci-e has had a good welcome andits use i think was more than they initially expected it would be. You could always get another agp card and a cheap motherboard, they still make up to 6800ultra in agp and they are quite cheap. It just means that to upgrade you will need to buy a new mobo later.
