  1. i bought my computer from ibuypower.com 2 years ago. recently my mobo fried and now i need a new one. i dont know where i can get another one for a good price. i've heard i can get one that ranges from about 50-60 dollars. if anyone could help me found the one i need, it would be most appreciated

    the one i had and am guessing need again was this

    MSI KT4VL VIA-KT400 DDR400
    WITH 10/100 LAN, USB 2.0 + 8X AGP MAIN BOARD

    can anyone help me find this to order online from a legitimate webiste and for cheap?

    do a search at newegg.com
    I would not buy low end boards
    after you have found a few you like do another search(google)
    for reviews of MB
    there are a few others that sell at fair pricesmbut I have found newegg to be faster on shipping and the shipping is low
    they run specials all the time, to be fair, heres a few
    tiger direct
    comgeeks
    surpluscomputers

    just another suggestion

    Also you might want to do the search the other way around, search for all mobos that are compatible with your CPU and socket and then possible upgrades like AGPX8 (video card interface) or even PCI-Express.

    For a system like yours, I think this board seems pretty nice.

    You will basically have to reinstall windows, which will erase everything.
    I couldn't find your exact model anywhere, at least reasonably priced, but the one I linked to should work, it's fairly full featured.
