Need new motherboard help

Postby Dezal » Tue Mar 28, 2006 10:58 pm

Well I knew it would happen before to long but my old PC is falling behind it's time. I was looking at specs required for Elders Scrolls Oblivion(Elders Scrolls being one of my favorite games of all time). My system doesnt meet their requirements.

I could use some help, I know I need a new motherboard, processor and Ram.

What I have now is
Athlon 1.5 processor
ATI Radeon AGP 9700 pro
512k sdram
Seagate 200gb Ultra ATA/100

What I want is pretty much a budget motherboard that can support both AGP and PCI express video cards. I would also like it it could support an ATA 150 drive for the future.

I dont know a whole lot about building PC's. I'm able to put one together just not too much on times of the newest hardware. I have looked some on newegg but not having much luck of what Im looking for.

Please feel free to ask me anymore questions.

Thanks for your help,

Asrock 939 Dual Sata2 is about the only one you can get that supports AGP and PCI-E. It happens to be cheap too.
