    if you want a gamming system i would recomend a 2400+ and a nforce2 board (like the ASUS A7N8X Deluxe) but that is more like $150.

    if you are determined to keep it under $100, try:

    there are many other options, it really depends on what you are looking for in a board.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    the Epox 8RDA is also a very good nforce2 board...the non"+" version w/o LAN and Firewire goes for about $105USD

    for a decent board dirt cheap - the Epox 8K3AE (E for economy) is a KT333 board and I can get it for less than $76USD

    I've been using an MSI KT3 Ultra , and for the price it seems a good buy. You can try E-Bay for lower prices than retail but make sure there's a warrantee of some sort. I fried an ECS K7S5A recently so I don't recommend that, despite its low price.
    Cheers

    I mentioned in another thread of yours that the ABIT-NF7 with LAN is going for 106 at newegg.com
