You will get some crap boards from companies like zebronics, murcury etc.
Best solution, trow the system away.

I dont think there is any DDR3 board for P4. But as its a LGA 775 socket proccy, you can get Gigabyte G41 combo for 3k and use your DDR3 RAM.

Why Combo ??

LGA775 based but DDR3 only boards from ASUS or Gigabyte are around Rs. 500 cheaper compare to G41 Combo..

That extra bucks can be spent on a 2GB DDR3 module..

The upgrade should be around Rs. 3200 for board and RAM in local market

:)

And you are right, G41 chipset based LGA 775 do support P4 HT 3.0 GHz :)

Yup, getting cheaper DDR3 LGA 775 board makes more sense.
Also the OP already has 4GB DDR3 RAM and getting additional RAM is not needed.

Buy a DDR3 based G41 Chipset motherboard for your P4 HT..

Nothing much can come within budget of 3k

I don't know why people can't answer straight. If the OP is asking for a motherboard for his setup, just tell him if you know one else ignore the thread/post.
@ OP: for basic use, your system is still good to go. You can opt for a G41 based motherboards which are still available and good to go till you upgrade beyond Core2Quad. The G41 Chipset supports Intel Processors in LGA 775 Package, so, you can go with Gigabyte G41M-Combo, which supports both DDR2 as well as DDR3 RAM, or MSI-G41M-P26, which also supports DDR3 RAM, Asus P5G41T-M-LX or LX3 which also support your processor and DDR3 RAM. You can get one of those well below 3.5K. I'll suggest a link: Motherboards - Buy Computer Components Online at Best Prices in India Only at Flipkart.com
Else, if you have a budget, (preferably a good one), upgrade, but make sure you're not upgrading to something entry level.
Not everyone has the resources to upgrade every year!
