    frankly, I would not purchase any of them. Your motherobard is the foundation of your system it is not a place to be cheap. If you have an intel CPU go with a board based on intel chipsets.

    take a look at these boards there are some nice intel 865PE based boards here for only a few dollars more than what you posted and they are well worth the extra money.

    You most certainly do not want a Biostar motherboard.

    I don't consider going from one crappy agp board to another crappy agp board an upgrade. If you want to upgrade, save up the money and upgrade, not switch brands. I would suggest saving up 5-6 hundred dollars, and buying a new pci-e motherboard, a new cpu, and a new video card.
