    Re: Mainboard for a CPU

    I would reckon something based on the 865 or 875 chip sets. the last good chip sets for Socket 478. im assuming you running on socket 478.

    The best board to choose fom are:

    Abit:
    IC7-G (875)
    IC7-Max 3(875)
    Is7(865)

    Asus:
    P4C-800(875)
    P4P-800 Except P4P-800-vm (865)

    Msi:
    Anything with 865 in the name

    Can vouch for the P4C-800E Deluxe. I had one for my Northwood 2.8 and it was really good. It's now my parents PC and still runs well

    Re: Mainboard for a CPU

    Late P4's were socket 775s - my 3.0 531 is. In which case an Intel 915 based chipset is ok. Of course, then an Intel 945 / 965 / 975 would make better sense and allow an element of upgradability.

    Re: Mainboard for a CPU

    Well - do you know for sure what P4 you have? Is it a newer one (s775), or an earlier one (s478). CPUz will tell you if you don't know. I think the 478 chips have pins rather than the flat contacts the 775s have if you only have the physical chip to look at.

    Well the thing is for the price of a motherboard you might get more performance from a cheap new mobo, cheap CPU and some new RAM.

    Re: Mainboard for a CPU

    Best performance or best price? Do you have a budget in mind? Also, we need to know whether you have a PCI express video card or an AGP one, and what kind of Ram (DDR or DDR2) you are running. All have a bearing on what can be recommended.

    As 306maxi states, you may be better of replacing the lot, although that *may* involve changing the ram and grafics card as well, dpending on your answers to the above.
