    If you want to install win98 as many people want to do, then go for intel 845 chipset motherboard. Otherwise you can opt for intel 915 chipset which is offered by dealers. On 915 you cannot install win98. My sincere advice is go for the latest motherboard like 915 and install xp. forget win98. even microsoft has stopped supporting it.

    please dont buy Intel 915 GAV board as it only has one IDE controller on the motherboard which displeases many IDE fans. also when u need to install two IDE and DVD RW at the same time, its not really possible unless u use a USB 2 IDE cable. am currently experiencing problems with this kind of situation. other than this only flaw, the board is good as it has four USB 2.0 ports and 4 SATA ports .

    check out boards of ASUS,MSI and GIGABYTE. they may be a bit costly but they are surely worth the price
