Hi, my old mb conked out four days ago and the repair guy is unable to fix it. i desperately need a new mb before withdrawl symptoms set in. i have an athlonxp 1800+ processor, 1152(1 gb + 128) mb ddr ram, with a 120 gb samsung pata hdd. i would like to have a pci-x based integrated a/v solution, with provision for both sata/pata raid capability. the new mb should be able to hold on its own against other mbs for atleast another 2 yrs, featurewise, though i wouldnt insist on it. since this would be the second time i am replacing my mb (the present mb gave me lot of problems, spending as much time in repair as at home), i would REALLY like it to be perfect, quality-wise. my budget is upto 8000 for it. do not recommend any msi boards, since the previous two mbs were msi. can somebody help me?
