    So do some Googling.
    Try Directron and NewEgg. They always have a good variety of parts.
    We're not here to do your research for you, man.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    try to go for an intel board. in my experience, they seem to be the best for a general purpose board. my pc has an intel 82845g (atleast i think thats the model. i know its the chipset and onboard video model) motherboard and not only does it have a decent video card (not a gaming video card by any means although it seems to handle games a bit better than most other onboard cards ive seen. but it should work well for usual video and whatnot), but the boot times seem to be pretty damned good. on a cold boot on this machine, the big wait i have at the bios is for the hard drive to spin up. second its up to speed its off to windows. on a warm boot (restart), the post is instantaneous.

    P.S. my board is microatx and socket 478 as well. supports P4's and celerons. currently its running a 2ghz celly.

    ASUS with an Intel chipset is my favorite.

    If you get a socket 478 board, make sure you get a dual channel DDR board though and put two sticks of ram on it.

    Dual Channel DDR boards require two sticks of ram. The reasoning is because each stick can be accessed seperately.
