My budget is $200, I really can't go much over that (and that includes shipping), maybe a little bit over.
Here is what I need
1 AGP Slot
At Least 3 PCI slots
168-pin SDRAM (This one is optional, motherboards that support 168-pin seem to be hard to find)
A Pentium 4 3.0Ghz or equivalent that works with the motherboard
If I can't find a mobo that uses 168-pin SDRAM, I'll need at least 512MB of RAM that will work with the Motherboard. I will add more at a later time
with power supply (at least 300W)
with side vent (for keeping my video card cool)
Window preferred, not required.
and obviously, the motherboard must fit it
The catch is, it has to be from Tiger Direct.
I've found a few combinations that will work, but I need to see what other people would do in my position
The good news is, once I replace those parts, I will not be using any of the parts that I got from Gateway when I ordered my PC about 3 years ago
